The Clay Center consistently brings eclectic, big-name acts to West Virginia, and its 2013 Clay Center Presents season will be no different.

The fall Clay Center Presents schedule will include Mountain Stage with Larry Groce Sept. 29, featuring songwriters Ani DiFranco, Dave Mason and roots band Dawes along with the jazz band Red Baraat.

The Doobie Brothers will play Oct. 13, and the group has a new album "World Gone Crazy," to supplement its classic hits such as "Black Water" and "Listen to the Music," and the musical Les Miserables will be co-presented with the Charleston Light Opera Guild Nov. 1-2 and Nov. 8-9.

The Clay Center also has scheduled add-on events to the performance season that include Diana Ross Aug. 21, The Beach Boys Sept. 22 and the Diana Krall Glad Rag Doll Tour Oct. 20 and also Celtic Woman: Home for Christmas, a symphony tour co-presented with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra Dec. 3.
