Orville Johnson - Freehand


This album is half vocal tunes and half instrumentals featuring my dobro playing. I cover songs by John Hartford, Bill Monroe, Leonard Bernstein, Mick Jagger, among others, and I wrote one myself. Two of my all-time favorite dobroists Mike Auldridge and Stacy Phillips join me for some fun on cuts 2 (Stacy) and 6 (Mike). Music critics would call this album "eclectic".

1. Imitation of the Blues, 2. Dobro Rhumba, 3. Somewhere (West Side Story), 4. You Are the One, 5. A Lua do Amazonia, 6. Rocky Road Blues, 7. As Tears Go By, 8. Yazoo City Jail, 9. Waggy Tail, 10. Today


You can purchase Freehand online from CD Baby, download it from iTunes, or see the How to Order page for mail order instructions.
