      Hi, folks:

      I just caught the following info on the ELP list:

      Keith Emerson is appearing with Dr. Robert Moog and Robert Margouleff at the
      Smithsonian Institute (National Museum of American History) in Washington on
      the 14th April 2000. Here he will join in a video conference, which will
      link students and participants in Washington with sights in Boston, Ithaca
      (NY) and Cleveland, for a panel discussion. On Saturday 15th April Keith
      will do a live guest appearance with the all synth band Mother Mallard.

      I'd certainly be interested in knowing more about this. Steve, you've got
      the connection with Mother Mallard. Got any more info you can share with us
      on this?

      Gary

        Gary & anyone else interested - here's an early version of the pressblurb:

        MOTHER MALLARD
        appearing at the Smithsonian
        with special guest KEITH EMERSON

        Saturday, April 15, 2000, 8:00 pm
        Carmichael Auditorium
        National Museum of American History
        14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington D.C.
        Tickets & Information: 202-357-3030

        This concert, featuring Mother Mallard and rock legend Keith Emerson, is
        sponsored by the Jerome and Dorothy Lemelson Center for the Study of
        Invention and Innovation and is part of the special Smithsonian event "The
        Keyboard Meets Modern Technology." Other "Keyboard" related Saturday events
        that are open to the public include a makers' display open from 11a.m.-3p.m,
        featuring representatives and the newest technology from Big Briar, Korg,
        Kurzwiel, Roland, and Yamaha. From 3-5p.m., in Room 3111 of the S. Dillon
        Ripley Center, there will be a panel discussion on the capabilities and
        future of the keyboard with Malcolm Cecil, Keith Emerson, Robert Margouleff
        and David Van Koevering.

        On Saturday evening, April 15, at 8pm Mother Mallard will perform with Keith
        Emerson as special guest performer. The program will consist of pieces
        referring to major 20th Century composers, including two pieces composed by
        David Borden: Variations on a Theme of Philip Glass (with the world premier
        of a new variation) and Perilous Night/Perilous Night Companion. Mother
        Mallard performers will include David Borden, Gabriel Borden, Richard Faria,
        Sam Godin Lisa Leong, Louise Mygatt, Les Thimmig, and Doug Wyatt, and will
        uhe late 1960s in Ithaca, NY by David Borden. The world’s first
        all-synthesizer band, Mother Mallard worked closely with Robert Moog, whose
        factory was located in nearby Trumansburg. Borden is a first generation
        minimalist composer with a number of releases on the Cuneiform and other
        labels.

        Keith Emerson is one of today’s most accomplished rock keyboard players. His
        band, Emerson, Lake and Palmer were one of the most popular rock bands of the
        1970s, notable both for their own compositions and for their rock updates of
        classical pieces.

        It is NOT completely clear to me at this point if Keith & M.M. will actually
        be playing TOGETHER, or if both will perform seperate sets.
