Nashville-based guitarist JD Simo plays the Murray Theatre, Ruth Eckerd Hall's intimate black box room, Friday; his trio includes Adam Abrashoff on drums and Adam Bednarikwith playing bass. Raved Rolling Stone: "JD Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan."
Simo plays hill country blues, psychedelic music and untethered rock 'n' roll. He was once a member of Phil Lesh's Phil & Friends, and has worked with Jack White, Luther Dickinson (whose hill country trio, the North Mississippi All-Stars, is beyond legendary) and Blackberry Smoke. He's also buds with Joe Bonamassa.
