Tom Petty's Guitarist Mike Campbell Organizing Benefit Concert

Longtime Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell will hold two benefit concerts for the second annual "Merry Minstrel Musical Circus: A Holiday Gathering and Goodwill Jamathon," which takes place at the Troubadour in Los Angeles on Dec. 20 and 21.

The benefit concerts are a collaborative effort between Campbell and singer-songwriter Jonathan Wilson.

ABC reports that proceeds from the concerts benefit the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund, a Los Angeles shelter for old and/or sick dogs, and the Manual Arts High School, one of the oldest high schools in Los Angeles, which is looking to purchase new brass and woodwind instruments for its music students.

Campbell's wife serves as the president of the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund, and Campbell sits on the board.
