Young @ HEART – Mike Goodwin and Kevin MacDonald
Mike Goodwin is a Margaret River local award winning singer songwriter.
With a definite lean toward country music, Mike’s rich vocal style has a unique tone that captures his own music and that genre perfectly. His songs are story driven and evoke the insights and emotions of a troubadour of many years.
Kevin McDonald is the go to maestro of choice lending his talents to many Margaret River musical outfits. Including playing double bass and some lead guitar on Mike’s most recent EP release “Locked Down”. Kevin has been honing his skills on guitar and bass for a lifetime. From cruise ships and functions to our very own Leeuwin stage. A Berklee grad and scholarship guitarist, Kevin lives and breaths music.
Mike and Kevin have worked together in bands and as a duo for well over a decade and are right at home playing together. “We absolutely loved playing for the Monday crowd at the Heart a few years back and look forward to returning with a bunch of new songs and stories.”
The Young@HEART music program is held at Margaret River HEART – Nala Bardip Mia every Monday morning from 10am – 11am. The program does not run on public holidays or when there is another major event in the foyer.
The initiative was developed to safely encourage participation in the arts among older residents (over 60s) during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to high interest, the free performances have since been opened to people of all ages. Nonetheless, the senior demographic still makes up the majority of the audience.
Young@Heart is broadcast live on Radio Margaret River.
This is a free event.
