The Beggars play The Seekers

Tribute band The Beggars will set up at Goolwa Centenary Hall on Wednesday, August 21 to perform a concert celebrating the career of Australian folk music icons The Seekers.

Fifty years ago, The Seekers were on top of the music world. Their 1968 farewell concert broke TV viewing records as it was broadcast live by BBC TV to 10 million fans, and their popularity has not faded with the years.

'The Beggars Sing The Seekers' follows The Seekers' story from the 1962 Melbourne cafe scene to London, the swinging centre of the 1960s pop universe.

All the hits will be faithfully re-produced, alongside The Beggars originals and rollicking setlist standards.

The show is at 2pm. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for concession. To book, call 1300 466 592 or visit https://sa2.seatadvisor.com/sabo/servlets/TicketRequest?eventId=100953635&presenter=AUALEXANDRINA
