This is a small showcase of the Athol Guy presentation on Friday 22nd of April.
Athol gave us a lovely insight to the History of the Seekers in this short presentation. He showed clips of the Seekers Shows and liberally sprinkled anecdotes of his experiences with the the band.
The audience loved this! He showed many of their hits, both from the orginal times and in the comeback tour later on.
Athol told us of his current philanthropic ventures one of which is an Alzheimers and Carers centre in Woodend. He has his book of his life with the Seekers on, revenue from which goes to this charity.
Here are some photos of the day. You can click on the images to enlarge them.
