Raggamuffin Announcement

19 January 2010 - 0 Comments

Wyclef Jean to remain in US to support Haiti fund raising and relief for his countrymen.

Andrew McManus Presents announced today that Lauryn Hill will now be bringing her own band to perform at Raggamuffin 2010, while Wyclef Jean remains in the US to continue his plight to help the people of Haiti.

The tragic earthquake that struck the Caribbean Island on January 12 has been described by Wyclef as an apocalypse and the Haitian born rapper has chosen to stay close to his homeland and continue to raise money and lend support for the devastated Island. As a result he is postponing his trip
and performance at the Raggamuffin music Festival until 2011.

Raggamuffin will be helping to support the Haitian people with collections at the show and donations can also be made through Wyclef's own http://www.yele.org./

Lauryn Hill will now perform Raggamuffin 2010 with her full band whilst Shaggy will now close the festival. Sly and Robbie will perform a separate set in what will be an amazing night of hip-hop and reggae music.

Also announce today is the addition of Kiwi band House of Shem to the New Zealand line-up. For more information on House of Shem please see http://www.houseofshem.com./
