Wade Hemsworth

Wade Hemsworth was a Canadian folk singer and songwriter, most notably the creator of “The Black Fly Song,” and, of course, “The Log Driver’s Waltz.” After Hemsworth’s passing in 2002, Governor General Adrienne Clarkson declared his songs “so much a part of our folklore . . . that we didn’t realize anyone had written them.”
