Musicians
    (1962-1968)
    Born in Melbourne, Australia
    1965 Line-Up:
    Judith Durham (July 3, 1943- ), lead vocals, piano and tambourine
    Bruce Woodley (July 25, 1942- ), guitar, mandolin and vocals
    Keith Potger (March 21, 1941- ), 12-string guitar, banjo and vocals
    Athol Guy (January 5, 1940- ), double bass and vocals
    Recorded the singles 'I'll Never Find Another You' (1965), 'A World of Our Own' (1965), 'The Carnival Is Over' (1965), 'Morningtown Ride' (1966) and 'Georgy Girl' (1967)
    They are often lumped in with the British Invasion despite being Australians.
    Due to frequent reunions and breakups, versions of both 'The Seekers' and 'The New Seekers' have been on the oldies circuit simultaneously.
    They were originally scheduled to perform 'The Carnival Is Over' at the closing ceremonies of the Sydney Olympics (2000), but had to cancel when Judith Durham broke her hip.
    They were the first Australian band to have a top five hit in the US, Britain and their native land simultaneously.
    Their homecoming performance at the Music Bowl in Melbourne set records for largest concert crowd and most watched TV show in Australia (1967).
    They were named Australians of the Year (1967).
    They did perform 'The Carnival Is Over' at the Sydney Paralympics, with Durham singing in a wheelchair.
