I see Jean and Alan regularly. Alan Seymore still sings very nicely. Jean does not sing for a number of reasons. The four letter word age being foremost, but for many years she was a bit fed up with how contemporary minded the folk world had become. I am glad to say things seem better now, but a lot of people felt the same in the 1980's and we were having a laugh about how the younger generation were 'Discovering' songs we had known for decades. Both Jean and Alan are still involved with the Bury Pace Eggers. Mally and I saw them a week or two ago.
