DARTMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS – The UMass Dartmouth Cultural Affairs Committee will present a performance by the musical group BLOU on March 11 in the Main Auditorium. 

BLOU is a musical group whose repertoire consists of traditional Acadian and Cajun tunes, French folk-rock originals and related Celtic material. BLOU combines talent, humor, charisma, and high-energy for extraordinary performances. 

BLOU's music is made up of ancient and new eclectic sounds spiced with powerful rhythms and originality. The concert will feature traditional Acadian and Cajun tunes with a smattering of pop, rock'n'roll and silly humor on stage to create a truly memorable experience. 

Although they do well with their Cajun-zydeco, their strength lies in their infectious French folk-rock originals, featuring well-enunciated vocals, mandolin, harmonica, accordion, and testosterone-less guitar playing. Additionally, BLOU’s arrangements of related Celtic material is superbly done, indicating they're the rare breed of musicians that can do it all. 

There is only one performance on March 11 at 8 p.m. in the Main Auditorium. Admission is $5 for the general public. Parking is available in lots 4, 5 and 6.
