Comedy star Steve Martin is strapping on his banjo again and returning to Minnesota for another gig with his bluegrass band.

The Hennepin Theatre Trust announced Tuesday that Martin and his group, the Steep Canyon Rangers, will play the State Theater in Minneapolis July 22.

Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers last toured Minnesota when they played WE Fest outside of Detroit Lakes in August.

Billed as "An Evening of Music and Comedy," the Steep Canyon Rangers show will also feature singer Edie Brickell.

Tickets go on sale Friday.

In addition to his stand-up comedy, Martin has appeared on "Saturday Night Live" several times through the years. As an actor, he has starred in such films as "The Jerk," "Roxanne," "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and two "Father of the Bride" movies.
