2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Australia’s legendary The Seekers.

The original line-up of The Seekers featuring Judith Durham, Bruce Woodley, Athol Guy and Keith Potger is still together and will mark their 50th anniversary with ‘The Golden Jubilee Tour’ commencing in May.

The Seekers 50 years with the original line-up is somewhat of a world record. We cannot find another example of a group featuring all of its original members that is still recording and touring.

The Seekers songs have become Australian classics. “I’ll Never Find Another You”, “A World Of Our Own”, “The Carnival Is Over”, “Morningtown Ride”, “Georgy Girl” are some of the best known Australian songs ever recorded.

Judith, Bruce, Athol and Keith took time to tell their story to Paul Cashmere at Noise11.com.
