A return to its roots
When Blake Parks graduated in 2006, the Duncan High School music department declared him the student most likely continue in the music industry, backing that hope with a $1,000 scholarship.
Now, more than 13 years later, Parks will return to his hometown in southwest Oklahoma to give a performance as fiddle player and vocalist for bluegrass band Steelwind.
“Playing music has always been my plan,” Parks said. “I came from a musical family and saw people play their whole life.”
