Arkansas State University-Newport will get its 2013-14 Concert-Lecture Series underway Oct. 10 when The Acousticatz take the stage at the ASUN Center for the Arts in a 7 p.m. performance.

 The Acousticatz are steeped in bluegrass, but tinged by pop, jazz and country, and can best be summed up by just five words, "Everything old is new again."  The group offers a refreshing, wholesome approach that crosses demographic lines and embraces young and old alike.
