                         Richland Creek Band



The Richland Creek Band is a group of acoustic musicians consisting of

Sandy Garwood, writer and vocals; Susan Blair, mandolin; Terry Blair,

guitar and vocals; Wayne Renardson, acoustic guitar; and Julie Mavity-Hudson,

upright bass. The group's repertoire consists of original material and an

eclectic mix of traditional tunes that span several decades.


Sandy is a veteran of the music business. Prior to arriving in

Nashville, she performed in Los Angeles clubs, recorded with Excursion

Records, and appeared in television productions. She has also recorded

for Nashville's Bitter Creek Records and Swing Set music. Her

perceptive songs cover the spectrum of human emotion, and are conveyed

with a sensibility born of experience.


Susan plays a mandolin made circa 1905 by Martin guitar for Wurlitzer.

It was a gift from her father to her mother in the 1930s. Susan brings a

mix of infectious American and traditional east European Yiddish tunes

to the band, blending those influences with a modern sensibility.


Terry plays a 1951 Gibson SJ-50 guitar, a gift from his father. In

addition to his solid rhythm playing, Terry sings traditional American

songs from such diverse artists as Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, John

Prine and Jim Croce.


Wayne plays a 1959 Martin D-18 (no family connection) purchased in 1972

when he moved to Nashville from Tallahassee, Florida. He has played with

several acoustic bands in town and writes about the music scene for

various magazines.


Julie, in addition to providing a foundation for Richland Creek on her

contemporary European stand-up bass, plays cello with both the Belmont

and Nashville Community Orchestras, flute with the Trevecca College

Community Orchestra, and saxophone with the Hunter's Lane Community

Band. She also plays traditional Irish tunes on the flute with Richland



The band has been performing in Nashville since 1992. In addition to

private engagements, they have been invited to play at Davis-Kidd,

Guido's, Windows On The Cumberland, the Annual Clamboil, the John

Trotwood Moore school string players camp, and the American Bar

Association's Pro-Bono National Conference.


The band appears regularly at the Grand Old Hatchery in Dickson,TN,

a live radio show featuring old-time country music similar to

the original Grand Ole Opry.
