She is now 70 and last orders has continued for a further 45 years with the original line-up of Durham, songsmith Bruce Woodley, bassist and raconteur Athol Guy and Keith Potger, who subsequently managed The New Seekers, now marking the 50th anniversary of debut hit I'll Never Find Another You with a further farewell tour. The foursome play two Scottish dates at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall tonight and tomorrow.
