Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley of The Seekers have sent a message of congrats to their former singer Judith Durham who is about to be added to the Women In Music Awards Honour Roll in Brisbane on 9 October.

The founders fathers of The Seekers said in a joint statement,

“We are delighted to see our ‘little sister’ honoured by the Australian music industry with her induction into the prestigious Australian Women in Music Awards Honour Roll in Brisbane.

This well-deserved accolade recognises Judith Durham’s stellar career and the achievements that established her as ‘Australia’s first pop princess’. She was unknowingly a trailblazer for Australian female performers, and the first Australian woman in popular music to be recognised on a worldwide scale, as the much-loved lead singer of The Seekers.

Congratulations JD, and much love always,

The Boys (Athol, Keith and Bruce) xxx”

When Judith heard about the award she said, “It’s such a blessing to have spent my 76 years of life so far in musical expression; so emotionally healing, inspirational and uplifting.

Athol, Bruce and Keith start their Australian dates as The Original Seekers on 13 October in Brisbane. Their new singer is Michael Cristiano.

The Original Seekers will perform songs from ‘Back To Our Roots’ live around Australia in October and November.

The Original Seekers dates

13 October, Brisbane, QPAC Concert Hall
20 October, Sydney, City Recital Hall
2 November, Melbourne, Melbourne Recital Centre
