Terry and his wife Pat have owned a home in Blue Mountains for the past ten years, and upon retirement, moved here in December 2015. Prior to his move to Blue Mountains, Terry was a member of The Probus Club of Kitchener Conestoga for approximately three years, and actively participated in their activities.

Born in North Bay, Greg spent the majority of his studying and working years in the Southern climes of Ontario – mostly in Toronto. A 45 year career running a family company in the Medical / Surgical Supply business was very rewarding. The company was national and afforded lots of travel to many Canadian destinations over the years as well as the opportunity to meet many interesting characters. Eventually immigrating back north again to Collingwood in the late 2000’s, Greg counts skiing in the winter and biking – both pedal and motor – in the summer as his current interests.

The life and career of an artistic pioneer are celebrated in this spirited musical biography which chronicles his triumphs and tragedies, from humble beginnings singing country music in small-town Texas to his rise up the record charts and into the hearts of music fans around the world.
