Noam Pikelny Is A Bluegrass Diva (with Help from Steve Martin, Ed Helms and Earl Scruggs)

Today is the official release date of the second studio album from Noam Pikelny. Produced by Punch Brothers fiddler Gabe Witcher, Beat The Devil and Carry A Rail features contributions from a range of musicians, including Bryan Sutton (guitar), Chris Thile (mandolin), Tim O’Brien (mandolin, fiddle), Jerry Douglas (dobro) and Aoife O’Donovan (Crooked Still). Last year Pikelny won the first annual Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass Music and appeared on Late Night with David Letterman with Martin. A new video posted to the Funny or Die site, contributed by Martin, with appearances by Ed Helms, Earl Scruggs, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile, Gillian Welch, and Dave Rawlings, shares the story of this “Bluegrass Diva.”
