Friends from dinner parties, Steve Martin is a Los Angeles bluegrass banjo picker and Edie Brickell is an introspective New York singer-songwriter. Get them to collaborate on songwriting via e-mail and you end up with “Love Will Come for You,” a winning collection of sweet, graceful folk music, with banjo (but not bluegrass) accents. Exercising their Texas roots (both were born there), they explore a baby thrown off a train, a breakup because she didn’t like his daughter and other intriguing tales that deliver vivid details and recurring rewards. In concert, the duo will be backed by Martin’s usual touring ensemble, the Steep Canyon Rangers. Read an interview with Martin and Brickell in Sunday’s Variety section. Jon Bream
