Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers will headline the International Jazz Festival

In June, the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival will return to upstate New York once more. Recurring headliners for the festival will be Steve Martin and his bluegrass band.

It was announced today, by producers of the festival, that Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, along with singer Edie Brickell, will play their music for the Rochester area on June 21, according to ABC News.

The last time the festival included Martin and his band was in 2012.

The festival is celebrating its 13th annual showing and will span over nine days — June 20 to 28. With over 230 shows in 13 Rochester venues, jazz enthusiasts will have more than ample time to see their favorite musical acts.

Alongside Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, Earth, Wind and Fire was announced as one of the other six acts to headline the musical festival. The R&B, Grammy-winning band is said to play on June 27, according to Rochester Jazz.

Later this week, the remaining headliners will be announced. Don’t miss out — tickets go on sale Friday morning.
