From 1972 to 1999, Dave and Al Sealey were Cosmotheka.
Performing the songs of the great Music Halls, they were considered by many to be the finest interpreters of the genre and appeared at venues across the country and around the world.
There were numerous radio series and television appearances, and their many fans included Roy Hudd, Bob Monkhouse, and Chas and Dave.
Their roots, however, remained firmly in the world of the people’s entertainment: the upstairs room at the pub, the folk festival, the village hall.
Since the tragic death of Al in 1999, Dave Sealey has returned to the stage in many collaborations, and today the next generation is taking part, and Dave’s son, Dan Sealey, along with pianist Adam Barry, recreate “a lot of the old songs, with a new twist”.
