Local singer-songwriter Fester Hagood has become a familiar face around town over the last couple years, by virtue of having established the popular Tuesday Night Confessional series, a showcase for regional acoustic talent, at Nowhere Bar. But a recent shoulder surgery left Hagood with unexpected nerve damage, causing him to temporarily lose the use of his guitar-strumming arm. While he recovers, friends have organized a series of benefit shows to assist with medical bills and for moral support. Tuesday’s “Arm Aid” event features country songwriting powerhouse and Confessional regular Levi Lowrey, as well as locals Betsy Franck, Danny Carter and Eric Hutchens (of Bloodkin), the Redstone Ramblers and rockers The Salt Flats.
