Since the early 1950s, the Fender Telecaster has shaped the sound of popular music. Wielded by greats such as Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Roy Buchanan, Danny Gatton, Steve Cropper, Albert Collins, James Burton and Albert Lee, the instrument has played a hugely influential role in the development of almost every style of American roots music – from blues, rock, and country to jazz, soul, and funk.

Chicago-bred, Nashville-based guitarist JD Simo has been criss-crossing upstate New York for the past few years, and while he’s played in Syracuse, Albany, Rochester and Buffalo, he still hasn’t made it to Ithaca.

That will change Thursday night when he comes to the Haunt, with Cortland-based blues-rock trio Digger Jones (Chris Merkley, Stiv Morgan, Chad Dean) opening the 8 p.m. show.
