The musical duo Beckenstein-Brown help us launch Go Deep, a book of poetry and pastels by poet Steve Nolan and artist NJ DeVico.
Steve Nolan has been writing poetry for 40 years, has spent time in Afghanistan, and as a social worker in the US Army and Air Force. NJ DeVico fell in love with Crayola crayons 56 years ago, but has since moved up to oil pastels.
Marion Beckenstein has sung extensively with Steve Reich and Musicians, the Philip Glass Ensemble, Music Before 1800 and the Long Island Baroque Ensemble, among others. Bryan Brown plays in the post-Nuggetist Shanghai Love Motel of New York City. The pair come by their repertoire via Appalachia, Hibernia, NYC, Saskatchewan, and too many other places to mention. Both reside near the top of the Manhattan Island.
