HEE HAW—We'd tell you go see the spectacular Emmylou Harris anyway—her clearwater voice only gets better with age—but when you throw Steve Martin on the bill? Turns out the genius comedian is also a stunningly good banjo player, so expect to be awed by his pickin' skills when he's not cracking wise. NL
Edgefield, 2126 SW Halsey, Troutdale, 6:30 pm, $47-89, all ages
