AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Born on Thursday Island in 1929, Seaman Dan didnt release his debut album, Follow the Sun, until his 70th birthday. In the next ten years he released five albums, showcasing traditional music from the Torres Strait, as well as those revealing his love of jazz and blues. Steady, Steady: The life and music of Seaman Dan is replete with Uncle Seamans stories of his active and sometimes dangerous life in the islands in the heyday of pearl diving and other jobs, and his later development as a professional singer/musician.'
