The Mondavi Center has announced three “Just Added” performances during summer and fall, including two by artists who have drawn big crowds in past appearances.

* Singer/songwriter Lyle Lovett will appear on Saturday, July 7, at 8 p.m. (Lovett was previously at Mondavi in October 2009). Tickets are $65 general, $35 students.

* Banjo picker Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers on Saturday, Aug. 25, at 8 p.m. (Martin and the Rangers were at Mondavi in October 2010); $75 general, $35 students.

* Comedian Eddie Izzard on Friday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. This will be Izzard’s first visit here; $45 general, $25 students.

The three performances are on sale to Mondavi Center subscribers, and go on sale to the general public on Sunday. Tickets and information are available at the Mondavi Center Ticket Office, MondaviArts.org and (530) 754-2787.

Since his self-titled debut album in 1986, Lovett has evolved into one of popular music’s one-of-a-kind performers. For his debut appearance at the Mondavi Center — a 2010 acoustic evening with fellow singer-songwriter John Hiatt — Lovett displayed his keen sense of humor and songwriting chops. Now he returns with his band on the heels of a new album, “Release Me,” a smart collection of originals and diverse covers that shows the breadth of this Texas performer’s interests.

In the roughly three years since Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers have been touring together, they have performed at festivals like Bonnaroo, New Orleans’ Jazzfest and The Newport Folk Festival, in addition to four tours. Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers’ latest album, “Rare Bird Alert,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and at No. 43 on the Billboard Top 200. Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers were named “Entertainer of the Year” at the 2011 International Bluegrass Association Awards.

Izzard has earned recognition as one of the foremost stand-ups of his generation and is developing a reputation as a film, television and stage actor. His bizarre, tangential, absurd and surreal comic narratives are lauded for their creativity and wit. Most recently, Izzard lent his voice to Disney’s animated feature “Cars 2.” The original documentary “Believe: The Eddie Izzard Story,” which documents his rise to fame from his early influences to now, received an Emmy Award nomination. Izzard also has been on Broadway in David Mamet’s play “Race” and in the independent film, “Every Day.”

“Just Added” events augment the Mondavi Center’s 2012–13 season of performances featuring classical music, dance, speakers, jazz, film and cultural programs.

Subscriptions are on sale now at (530) 754-2787 and at MondaviArts.org. Single tickets for all other 2012–13 performances will go on sale Aug. 10, 2012.
