I would love to see The Abyssinians. Never have, but would really love to.

Three questions:

Does any one know if they are performing anywhere else in CA besides this festival?

Does any one know which night they will play?

When are the line ups announced?

Thanks for your help. Peace.

Well the original Abyssinians consisted of Bernard Collins, Donald Manning and Lynford Manning. So far as I am aware, Lynford has not held the mike in over 25 years, but it WILL BE Bernard and Donald together again!!!

The lineups will be out in a few weeks, but if i were a betting man, I would go with Sunday for the Abyssinians.....

The original Abyssinians last performed together around 1989/90 in the UK, with Linford alongside his brother and Bernard.

seeing the Abyssinians for the first time on a SNWMF stage back in 1997 was truly an amazing moment. Not only did they peform Satta a whole of 3 times but they were a ROOTS band and it was massive binghi drum joy. If you've never seen them, prepare to have your mind melted....into a blissfull state.
