We're happy to announce the release of our third Songscape project! Last summer we partnered gritty singer-songwriter, Jake Klar, with sustainable forestry center, Great Mountain Forest. Klar spent a few nights in the deep woods of northwest Connecticut, immersed in a landscape that's been practicing sustainable forestry since 1909! Take a look at the music video for Klar's Songscape Song, "Tallyman" and you won't believe it's Connecticut.
"Tallyman" is a beautiful song that speaks to the passage of generations in lockstep with the forest. Heavily rooted in the history of forestry and iron industry in Connecticut, his voice beautifully highlights Great Mountain Forest and its legacy.
As with all of our Songscapes, Great Mountain Forest is public land- owned by a nonprofit, but accessible to all for hiking, cross country skiing, birding and more. Plus, they make the most delicious maple syrup!
If you want to help ensure that Sustain can keep promoting conservation and public lands, that Great Mountain Forest can continue educating kids and practicing sustainable forestry, and that Klar can keep making music, PLEASE do purchase the song at: https://jakeklar.bandcamp.com/track/tallyman
Proceeds will support all of us!
