They head the Ashokan Center, home of Ashokan Music and Dance Camps, founded in 1980.

After the duo’s breakup, Parks was enlisted as guitarist and right-hand man of Woodstock legend Richie Havens. With Havens, Parks performed at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and the Cannes Film Festival. Through his deep interest in the music of his native region, he has become an expert on the American Folklife Center’s Francis Harper collection of folk music of the Okefenokee Swamp region of Georgia.
