Welcome to the web page of the Country Music Association of Canberra (CMAC).

Vale Peter Michael Seal

It is with much sadness we farewell Peter Seal who was a mainstay of CMAC for several decades, serving in many capacities, his most recent being a couple of years ago as President.

During the lockdown Peter passed after a long medical battle. He has left behind many heavy hearts but also a great legacy.

Our sympathy goes out to Sue, and her family. 

Peter started a band called “Loose Connections”, and many artists have passed through that band,. Peter was an accomplished songwriter and I always found him jovial, witty, and never short of a smile. Being a war vet, Peter supported many others, often by taking his guitar to different locations and having jam sessions with folks. To him this was never a chore; he loved doing it so much.

So, rest in peace Peter, I can hear you up there in that big blue sky, singing to them all, “Let the Midnight Special, Shine your Light on Me”.
CMAC will miss you a lot Pete, so with a heavy heart I say, “So long, you’ll always be remembered.”


Many thanks to our Public Officer, Bev Stokes, for much of the text above.
