According to a statement released by her record label, Judith Durham, who was a prominent figure in Australian folk music and the lead singer of The Seekers, has passed away. Her age was 79.

It was thanks to Durham that Australian artists were able to break through to an international audience. The Seekers, an Australian pop band that was formed in 1962, are widely regarded as the first band from their country to achieve mainstream success in both the United Kingdom and the United States.

A number of the band’s songs became hits, including “Georgy Girl,” “I’ll Never Find Another You,” and “A World of Our Own.”
