Jammin’ with the Dogs
DIY video contest for Steve Martin song.

On Tuesday, I had the great pleasure of seeing Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers perform songs from his CD The Crow: New Songs for the Five String Banjo. A highlight was Martin’s live version of “Wally on the Run,” a song about his dog playing fetch. Fiddler Nicky Sanders created the sounds of barking and whining perfectly with his bow and strings. Pure fun.

So I was thrilled when I heard about his “Make Your Own Music Video Contest” for “Wally on the Run.” If you’re a fan of banjo and dogs, like me, why not get into the spirit of things yourself by capturing your dog's antics on video? First prize: bragging rights and $1,000 first prize. Second prize: 99 cents. Here are the details direct from the wild and crazy guy, himself.
