Crossing the Sabine is the Piper Jones Band’s second album and the first milestone in a recording project that will run for most of 2016. Bagpiper E.J. Jones calls it his “prototype CD,” because after the May album drop, he’ll release new versions of the songs online, some with additional guest artists. Over several months, he and frequent collaborator Frances Cunningham (bouzouki) will also go on immersive musical journeys spanning the U.S., France and Scotland. They’ll unveil two more albums upon return — one to highlight each musician — that include further evolved takes on the initial compositions. Hear the new music in its infancy when the Piper Jones Band, joined by Cunningham and local percussionist Kent Spillman, plays Jack of the Wood on Friday, April 15, at 9 p.m. $7. jackofthewood.com.
