ROCHELLEóMulti-talented musician Jim Kanas of Kings has played instruments all over the world with famous musicians including Alison Krause, Steve Goodman, the Nashville Cats, Harvey Reid and more. On Friday after school hours, Kanas took a break from his demanding schedule and visited middle school students in the afterschool HUB Project program at Rochelle Middle School.

Kanas, who travels regularly to teach about the origins of music, held the studentsí focus by quizzing them on the different types of instruments and their origins.
