William Christopher Handy (November 16, 1873 – March 28, 1958) was an American composer and musician, known as the "Father of the Blues". Handy was one of the most influential American songwriters. He was one of many musicians who played the distinctively American blues music, and he is credited with giving it its contemporary form. Handy did not create the blues genre and was not the first to publish music in the blues form, but he took the blues from a regional music style (Delta blues) with a limited audience to one of the dominant national forces in American music.

  • William Christopher Handy (16 de noviembre de 1873-28 de marzo de 1958), más conocido como W. C. Handy, fue un compositor y músico de blues, considerado como "The Father of the Blues" (el padre del blues). Aunque no fue el primero en publicar música bajo la forma de blues, sí fue el primero que lo recogió del Delta siendo un estilo regional no muy conocido y lo convirtió en una de las fuerzas dominantes de la música americana.
  • Importante autore musicale, Handy fu senz'altro solo uno tra i molti musicisti suoi contemporanei che praticavano quello che fu poi detto "il blues": egli fu tuttavia quello che più di altri contribuì a dargli la sua forma moderna. Handy, non fu - come è stato spesso detto - il primo a pubblicare musica blues, tuttavia fece sì che il delta blues, all'epoca una forma musicale d'interesse quasi esclusivamente regionale, divenisse una delle forze trainanti della musica popolare americana e non solo, del XX secolo.
