The Blight of the Hemlock


NIMBioS Songwriter-in-Residence Jay Clark debuts his song, The Day the Last Hemlock Died, which tells the story of the blight of the Eastern Hemlocks in Southern Appalachia. The song ends with a short refrain, a note of optimism, from Aaron Copland's "Appalachian Spring." For more information about the songwriter-in-residence program, visit /songwriter.
