parkhussion is the ‘umbrella persona’ of Keith Parkhurst and his musical and music-related endeavors. Simply put, parkhussion encompasses the “Industries of Keith Parkhurst”, and is intended to provide benefit for, to, from, and with music in any way he can connect it. This project is an attempt to organize a view into those efforts for the purposes of sharing information, as well as to facilitate and promote Keith’s musical and creative collaboration with other people wherever and whenever… it’s long been the dream, and now it is started!
