“I Ain’t Dead Yet,” is a tribute to Dock Boggs saying in a press release, “He played a song called ‘Roses While I’m Living’ which expressed the same sentiment. We’re here now, we have time to appreciate one another now rather than memorialize them when they’re gone.”

Parr is currently in the early stages of an extensive tour that goes into early November with a two-date show at The Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis.
