About Stevie and the Bluescasters
Stevie and the Bluescasters is an acoustic three-piece blues band from Philadelphia specializing in unique arrangements of Chicago, Delta, Piedmont, Texas, pre-war and country blues as well as old Gospel, old Country and a half-pint of R&B.
We also include a smattering of International “Blues” – Mourna, Ladino, Sean Nos and Fado – sung in Portuguese, Spanish and Irish.
Our set consists of a variety of vocals, guitars, National Steel/Resonator, mandolin, harmonica, and even yodeling! Over the years playing together, we have crafted a unique sound that is based on skill and depth, but above all, sheer love for this kind of music.
We recorded our CD, “All Kinds of Blues” at Rittenhouse Soundworks in January 2017.
“Few but mighty, Stevie and the Bluescasters demonstrate without a doubt that there IS such a thing as an intimate powerhouse! Just (but not merely!) a trio, their brand of deep-fried acoustic blues will rock your soul. From Stevie Nolan’s gutsy-yet-sweet vocalizing to her backdoor man Paul Nolan’s inventive, driving guitar to Seth Holzman’s spine-tingling harmonica (both unamplified and green-bulleted), this is a blues band with a no-nonsense take-no-prisoners craftsmanship and bone-deep conviction. Whatever your ills, the Bluescasters are your miracle cure. Wellness is just a Wild-Ox Moan away!” – Rusty Cloud (Keyboards) Blues Brothers Blues Band, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes
Norman Taylor is a Singer/Songwriter/Acoustic Blues and Soul performer from the Philadelphia area. His style is entrenched in the country blues of people like Robert Johnson and Skip James, and contemporary acoustic blues men like Keb Mo, Eric Bibb and Guy Davis. Norman also draws influence from country, 70’s rock, soul, gospel and a variety of musical forms.
