John O'Shaughnessy, Heather Humphreys, Helen Mottee and Russell Clucas will take to the stage at the Kendall Music Exchange on Friday, August 6.

John and Heather have built a reputation across the region performing John's original songs.

They have been the support act for touring musicians, as well as supporting touring acts at Wauchope Community Arts Council events.

The duo will be joined by songwriter, pianist and vocalist Helen Mottee and Russell Clucas bringing his soulful songs and sensitive guitar into the mix.

These four talented singer songwriters have performed together on and off for the last 20 years.

John and Helen met at the Australian Songwriters Association's annual awards night in 2001. They were both being presented with significant awards for their works and were astonished that they lived near each other and had never met.

Russell Clucas, a prolific songwriter soon joined them and began a creative collaboration that resulted in beautiful musical arrangements and memorable performances.

After a break working separately they're back together, tweaking and enhancing each other's songs and planning performances which include the Kendall Music Exchange to kick off.
