Mountain Stage returns to Clay Center with enticing new lineup of performers

Hear a mix of indie, soul, rock and jazz as Ani DiFranco, Dawes, Dave Mason & Red Baraat each take a turn bringing their own unique style to the Clay Center in Mountain Stage with Larry Groce Sunday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. This historic show is the 800th live recorded Mountain Stage performance.
An outspoken singer-songwriter with a massive grassroots following, Ani DiFranco passed on signing with a major label in the ‘90s to continue producing her own music her way. This indie-rock star headlines a diverse group of artists in a show full of amazing talent.
Enjoy the California-based roots rock of Dawes, sing along to the Traffic hit “Feelin’ Alright” with Dave Mason and experience Red Baraat’s interesting mix of hard-driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of jazz, go-go, brass funk and hip-hop in this extraordinary performance.
The show is part of the Clay Center Presents fall 2013 performance season, sponsored by BrickStreet Insurance and National Travel.
