After an absence of over 30 years Terry Jacks made his first live stage performance at the 2003 Festival of Freedom at the Forks. Terry is returning this year and will participate in the closing ceremonies on July 25th, 2004 performing "Seasons In The Sun".
Terry Jacks' early years were spent completely entrenched in the music industry as a songwriter, record producer, and then a singer. As a result he shot to stardom, not only with The Poppy Family, who released the first international hits out of Vancouver ("Which Way You Goin' Billy?", "Where Evil Grows", and "That's Where I Went Wrong"), but even more so as a solo artist. His "Seasons In The Sun" sold over 12 million copies world-wide, making it one of the biggest selling singles of all time.
Terry Jacks and The Poppy Family have been the recipients of nine Canadian "Juno" and "Gold Leaf" awards with international sales totaling over 20 million records.
After his daughter Holly was born in 1985, Jacks formed "Environmental Watch", a communications network that enlists experts from all fields who donate their talents and services to help secure a better future for our planet. Since then his time has been spent tirelessly defending the environment.
