Now, The Carnival is Over. RIP Judith Durham

Recommended Posts

  • John Wright changed the title to Now, The Carnival is Over. RIP Judith Durham

The Seekers won a summer talent show at the Villa Marina, the prize was a recording contract, so the island did play a part in their career. 

They played on the back of a lorry in Douglas Carnival that year, I remember standing right in front of Judith Durham as she sang, a lovely voice and smiling face, I was in love, although a tad young to do anything about it!

That talent competition must have been an annual thing, I recall Luke Kelly from The Dubliners often mentioning during island visits that he was bitter about finishing second one year and having to wait for his big chance with the Dubliners!
