      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.
