Jason Kabler brought a guitar with him for his homecoming to Greencastle this weekend. The Nashville, Tenn.-based musician performed five shows in this region, including one at the American Legion in his hometown Sunday. There, the 38-year-old displayed his sound, which has evolved from rock to country to its current genre - whatever that is. Kabler laughed as he explained how an announcer recently described him as a pop/rock artist. “I said, 'I guess I'm no longer country,'” Kabler said.

And during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, it was the instrument of choice, arriving in the United States with European immigrants who held the mandolin in high esteem. Maybe it was the sound that made it so popular — distinctive, shimmering and ethereal.
