In late 2006, legendary (I don't use the word lightly) guitarist Tom Hall had his 1931 National guitar (also known as an extension of his body and soul) stolen outside a Soulard bar. The Iron Barley restaurant held a benefit and collected enough money to replace the instrument, and ever since Hall and a constellation of fellow veteran musicians have been paying it forward with annual benefits for good, music-related causes.

This Sunday, January 30, the Iron Barley presents the Fifth Annual Tom Hall Guitar Benefit and Resophonic Extravaganza. Doors open at 3 p.m. and music starts at 4 p.m. Admission is $20, and includes a fried chicken dinner. The performers are a who's who and rogues gallery of some of the finest players in town: Geoff Seitz, Mark Renard, Jim Nelson, Brian Curran, Kim & Jim Lansford, John Higgins, Kevin Buckley, Charlie Pfeffer, Margaret Bianchetta and many more. Proceeds benefit music programs at Saint Frances Cabrini and Guitars for Vets
