New Seekers: Chris Barrington

Born in Lancashire in 1950, Chris Barrington was one of the original members of the New Seekers. An article in a 1970 edition of the Australian Woman's Weekly described him thus: "Chris Barrington, at 19, the youngest, plays the clown as well as he plays bass guitar, rhythm guitar and piano." The same article also mentioned that Chris had "hit it off romantically - as well as musically" with fellow group member Sally Graham.

After quitting the New Seekers, Chris Barrington, Laurie Heath and Sally Graham formed a trio called Milkwood. They released three singles for Warner Brothers, the third of which, What Can I Do To Make You Love Me, featured Chris singing the lead vocal on the B-side. The sleeve notes on Milkwood's first single said this about Chris:

"He met up with Laurie at the tender age of 10 when both were attending acting school in London. Both appeared in the London stage production of The Sound of Music and the film Goodbye Mr. Chips. It was while filming that they first started playing together. Laurie heard about the New Seekers audition from his acting agency. He went along, mentioned Chris to Keith [Potger], and both were accepted."
