Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell is tapping into the charitable aspect of the season. 

The rocker is joining singer-songwriter Jonathan Wilson in co-hosting the 2nd annual Merry Minstrel Musical Circus: A Holiday Gathering and Goodwill Jamathon.  Money raised through the event will go to the Los Angeles Public Schools and the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund.  This year's lineup hasn't been announced yet. 

Last year Campbell's bandmate Benmont Tench took part in the festivities along with Jackson Browne, the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, ELO's Jeff Lynne, and others. 

The 2nd annual Merry Minstrel Musical Circus is set for The Troubadour in Los Angeles on December 20th and 21st.
