Winter Concert Series Features
Seventh-day Adventist Church
of Winter Haven
December 4, 2004 -- 6:00 P.M.
Steve Martin is certainly a man blessed with many talents. He uses them to witness for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He plays trumpet, flute (both wood and metal - of all sizes), guitar, banjo, harmonica, as well as other instruments. He brings from these instruments the most lovely music. It is about as celestial as one can hear.
It would be hard to find people in any audience more appreciative and enthusiastic than those who listened to Martin, who also played during the morning Worship service as well as telling a musical related story to the young people. Needless to say he had their undivided attention.

During the Sabbath evening concert in the Sanctuary, Steve played many inspiring and uplifting great carols of the Christmas Season.
After sundown, many made their way to the fellowship hall where he played another mini-concert of true-blue 'blue grass' music. He 'lit up' the frets of his guitar and banjo while playing, Wabash Cannon Ball, Theme from the Beverly Hillbillies and many others.
Martin thought he had played the last song when his good friend since college days, Jim Lynch, said he could not leave without playing 'Dueling Banjos'. Steve said that was normally played by two people but since we were such a good group, he would play both parts. While moving his body from side to side to mimic the two players, his nimble fingers brought forth the spirited music to the great pleasure of his listeners.
