Booktopia

Summary

Born on Thursday Island in 1929, Seaman Dan didn't release his debut album, Follow the Sun, until his 70th birthday.

In the next 10 years he released 5 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 Seaman's 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.

The book includes many evocative and previously unknown images sourced from family and friends and will include a CD of tracks reflecting important periods in the life of this national treasure.
