DIE AUSTRALISCHE SÄNGERIN, SINGER-SONGWRITERIN UND MUSIKERIN JUDITH DURHAM (THE SEEKERS) IST GESTORBEN

07.08.2022 Die am 3. Juli 1943 als Judith Mavis Cock in Essendon (Melbourne) geborene australische Sängerin, Singer-Songwriterin, Musikerin und Komponistin Judith Durham (Bild) ist am 5. August 2022 in Melbourne gestorben. Sie war Gründungsmitglied und Leadsängerin der 1963 in Melbourne gegründeten und international, vor allem aber in Grossbritannien äusserst erfolgreichen Pop-Folk-Gruppe The Seekers. Bis in die 1980er-Jahre lebte Durham zeitweilig auch in der Schweiz. Ihre letzte Konzerttournee mit den Seekers führte Durham im Frühsommer 2014 durch England und im November desselben Jahres nach Neuseeland. Zu den auch hierzulande bekanntesten und einflussreichsten Hits der Seekers gehörten u.a. "Georgy Girl", "The Carnival is Over", "Morningtown Ride", "A World of Our Own" oder "I'll Never Find Another You".

Judith Durham: A Seeker who found international fame

Every Australian of a certain age knows all the words to the Seekers’ songs. Any gathering overseas will lead to The Carnival is Over, Morningtown Ride and probably Georgy Girl.
