Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers perform during the 46th Annual Candlelight Concert at the Segerstrom Center For The Arts on Dec. 6, 2019 in Costa Mesa, Calif.

In these tumultuous times, less is more, and Steve Martin has casually embraced that ethos with a simple one-man bluegrass jam in the woods.

Though Martin is famous for his hilarious Hollywood career, the actor and comedian is also a passionate, Grammy-winning American roots musician with nine titles hitting the Billboard 200 albums chart.

On Saturday (March 21), Martin took it upon himself to spice up the timeline of his Twitter followers by picking up the banjo and indulging in a brief "banjo balm" in a leafy grove to take them away from the headlines for 79 seconds of pleasant picking.

Watch Martin's brief banjo reprieve below.
