The two musicians performed each other’s songs and included a few others showing excellent acoustic guitar work and tight harmonies. They threw in a few other songs, much to the delight of the crowd on a perfect evening for enjoying music along the Ohio River.

The 8 p.m. Friday night show this week will feature a taste of music gumbo by Louisiana natives Big Al and the Heavyweights, ranging from Cajun to Zydeco to blues to rock with a little taste of the Mardi Gras.
