Old Hippies to continue to perform

The Old Hippies, Kay and Bill McDonald, have been performing a series of Saturday night concerts from their home in Stuart, Fla.

Former Genesee County residents Kay McDonald and Bill McDonald are performing their eighth "Home to Home Concert," a series of Saturday night performances presented live from their Florida living room.

Bill and Kay, who make up the duo Old Hippies, play at 7 p.m. Saturdays.

"We understand everyone's lives have become a bit out of sorts. We too, for the most part are holed up and have had many shows cancelled or postponed. This is our way to engage with you when we can’t be together in person and share some joy through our music," Bill McDonald said in a Facebook post this evening.

Singing, dancing and playing along at home is encouraged.

The performances are designed to connect folks who are unable to go out to concerts and other arts programs due to closures and limits on large gatherings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With everyone at home and in the same situation, Bill said he didn’t want to talk about the situation or be political. They just wanted to invite people into their home and play some music, which is where the idea for the “Home to Home” concert series came from. It was the closest they could get to people coming out to one of their venues to listen to them play.

The livestreams happen on Bill McDonald’s Facebook page (Bill.McDonald.188). The Daily News has been sharing the livestream on its Facebook page.
