Old Hippies

The duo Old Hippies, featuring Kay McDonald, left, and Bill McDonald, right, are shown performing tonight from their living room in Florida. It's their sixth "Home to Home" concert.

Former Genesee County residents Kay McDonald and Bill McDonald are back in Batavia tonight for their 17th "Home to Home" concert series.

Bill and Kay, who perform as The Old Hippies, have been presenting a series of Saturday night performances since the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The concerts began from the living room of their Florida home and later included a handful of outing streamed from Florida-area venues.

Tonight, the venue is their home in Batavia - where they returned to July 7 following three days of travel.

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.
