Former Genesee County residents Kay McDonald and Bill McDonald are back on a live stage tonight for their 15th "Home to Home" concert series. The duo, performing as the Old Hippies, will present two sets from Little Jim Bait & Tackle in Fort Pierce, Fla.
The first concert is scheduled from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., followed by a second set from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Bill and Kay have been presenting a series of Saturday night performances from the living room of their Florida home, with a couple of outings streamed from Harry and the Natives, a favorite performing venue. Tonight's performance represents a new venue for the online concert series.
The full title of the concert series is called "Be Kind to One Another Home to Home Concert Series."
"Our purpose has been and will continue to bring some music, peace, love, entertainment and good vibes through our music from our home/location) to yours/location," Bill McDonald said.

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