Deeper Charley Patton

Deeper Charley Patton

This week we’ll explore the music of the legendary Charley Patton. We’ll be dipping our toes into the birth of the Delta blues featuring some classic tracks from the gravel-voiced masked wonder as well as some rich covers from contemporary performers. Listen in for music from Otis Taylor, David Johansen, Corey Harris, and Taj Mahal…just to drop a few names. We’ll also scratch the surface of Charley’s career including some reflections from a master’s thesis written by none other than the American musicologist and musician, John Fahey. Tune in Friday morning as we board ourselves a raft to roll down the waters in search of the rich and elusive legend of the Mississippi Delta blues that was Charley Patton.
