From their farewell concert at the BBC in London July 7 1968."The carnival is over"Not until 1993 did they get together again with Judith as a lead singer.
They then more or less performed concerts together until 2004.But the years are moving on for all of us and they have retired for good now as a group after having their last tour summer of 2004.Their last ever concert was in Hong Kong October 8th 2004.Keith Potger, Judith Durham and Athol Guy still perform in Australia as solo artists.
But as they have said themselves:"Never say never"they are to tour in May 2011 with Andre Rieu in Australia.


The lyrics for "The Carnival is over" was written by Tom Springfield and the melody is based on a old Russian folk song.
Judith had to put up a real fight to get
this song recorded as the boys rather would
record another song called "Hummingbird"
instead.But she got her will and it was
recorded first time in 1965.At it's peak this single record was selling 90,000 copies a day in the UK.
