Laurie Jones is from Downeast Maine originally, but she went to Nashville to write music for years. Then she took a musical hiatus and came home to Maine.

But music never left her.

She's recorded a new album - her fifth - called "Bridges." She enlisted all local talent in the playing, recording, mastering and manufacturing.

Laurie Jones is celebrating the release of the CD with a show at St. Lawrence Arts Center in Portland on Saturday, June 17th. A portion of proceeds from the sale of CDs will go to Monarch Place Sober House for Women.
