Playing with the entertainer and his accompanist were local musicians Jared Sheets and Kyle Neal.
Friday night's program kicked off the summer series of the Pomeroy Blues and Jazz Society's concerts which continue at 8 p.m. for the next three Friday nights, and then culminate with the July 25-26 Big Bend Blues Bash on Pomeroy's parking lot.
The Friday, July 4 concert will feature Nicole Hart and the NRG Band. Hart, a seasoned blues singer, is making her first appearance on a Meigs County stage. She not only sings the blues, but does some classic and contemporary music.
All of the Rhythm on the River concerts are free.
