Charley Patton (died April 28, 1934), also known as Charlie Patton, was an American Delta blues musician. Considered by many to be the "Father of the Delta Blues", he created an enduring body of American music and inspired most Delta blues musicians. The musicologist Robert Palmer considered him one of the most important American musicians of the twentieth century.


There is presently a Gofundme campaign to recoup the costs of a riding lawnmower now used by Mike Davis to maintain Holly Ridge Cemetery, the final resting place of blues artists Charley Patton, Willie Foster, and Asie Reed Payton, as well as former caretaker Joseph "Coochie" Howard.
