Former Genesee County residents Kay McDonald and Bill McDonald are back in their Florida home for tonight's 12th "Home to Home Concert."
Bill and Kay, who perform as the duo Old Hippies, have been presenting a series of Saturday night performances from the living room of their Florida home, with a couple recent outings streamed from Harry and the Natives, a favorite performing venue.
"We love bringing our music into your homes, or wherever you may be," Kay McDonald said in a Facebook post on Saturday. "We continue these concerts because we love doing them and because YOU watch them!"

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.
