Ani DiFranco on Mountain Stage

anidifrancoHeadlining Mountain Stage Live this Sunday is musical powerhouse Ani DiFranco. The singer, guitarist, poet, and songwriter will be performing on September 29 at The Clay Center in Charleston, WV.

One of the most influential musical forces of the 90’s Ani DiFranco wrote and sang songs about controversial issues like rape, abortion and sexism. She has grown up playing music, penning her first song when she was only 14 and starting her own record label when she was 18 years old. She has 21 albums to her name, and established the Righteous Babe Foundation in support of grassroots cultural and political organizations.

Joining her are folk-rock band Dawes, Dave Mason from the band Traffic, and Red Baraat, an eight-piece band that combines the hard-driving North Indian bhangra rhythms with elements of jazz, go-go, brass funk, and hip-hop.

Tickets for the show are available for sale online through the Clay Center’s website, or by calling (304) 561-3570. Tickets bought in advanced costs $30, while tickets bought on the day of the show costs $35. Doors open at 6:30 pm, performance starts at 7:00.
