Buddy Doyle (March 20, 1911 unknown) was an American Memphis and
country blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He was a working associate
of Big Walter Horton and Hammie Nixon.
Charlie Doyle was probably born in Forrest City, Arkansas, United States.
During the 1930s, the diminutive Doyle performed regularly on Beale Street,
It is generally accepted that Big Walter Horton made his first recording
backing Doyle, on Doyle's Memphis based eight song recordings made for the
Okeh and Vocalion labels in 1939. Doyle also recorded with the harmonica
player, Hammie Nixon, around the same time, although some of their recorded
work remains unissued.
Little is known of Doyle's life outside of his recorded work, and his death
appears to be unrecorded.
