5-String Productions is delighted to release Craig Johnson's Away Down The Road. Craig has crafted a beautifully intimate recording brimming with emotion and character. Craig has a beautiful high voice that he uses masterfully. Since 1972, Craig has played in a variety of string bands, including two bands with releases on 5-String; The Double Decker Stringband and Martin & Johnson. He has learned from records and from the old masters themselves, including Clyde Davenport, Luther Davis, and Kahle Brewer. Away Down the Road includes both traditional blues, gospel and old-time music as well as five originals by Craig.
'This recording is a collection of some of my favorite traditional Southern songs, interspersed with some fiddle and banjo tunes, as well as a handful of songs I wrote during a period of uncharacteristically original thought. On stage or around the house, this is the music I'm likely to be doing.' - Craig Johnson

There's so much music available these days that when I come up with a new CD I'll generally listen to it once or twice, upload it to my iTunes library, and then move on to something else. Craig's "Away Down the Road" is the exception. I find myself listening to it again and again, always learning something new about the music--the tunes as well as the songs. I cannot think of a more heartfelt, genuinely affecting collection of work.
Craig Johnson was the real deal.
