UTS'AM / WITNESS CD LAUNCH BRINGS CANADIAN ARTISTS TOGETHER TO SUPPORT
INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE
Bruce Cockburn, Buffy Sainte-Marie among artists featured on benefit CD

(VANCOUVER) 'UTS'AM / WITNESS' launches its first CD at the Vancouver
East Cultural Centre Sept 14th. The benefit CD features Bruce Cockburn,
Buffy Sainte-Marie, Kinnie Starr, Veda Hille, Sandy Scofield and Barry
Truax among other celebrated artists who support the cross-cultural
dialogue project.

UTS'AM / WITNESS has brought people together to speak, listen and be
heard on First Nations, ecological and community issues since it began
its award-winning ceremony and camping weekends in 1996. It introduces
people from all walks of life to Coast Salish tradition by inviting them

to 'witness' the events that shape our lives.

The project was founded in part by Order of Canada recipient and
legendary mountaineer and wilderness educator John Clarke, who died last

year. The CD is dedicated to his memory.

"We wanted to honour the memory of John Clarke, and the work he has done

through this amazing project," says sylvi macCormac, CD producer, adding

that the CD will also benefit his other passion, the Wilderness
Education Program. (www.wepbc.ca)

A soundscape artist, macCormac performs at the launch with Xalek' Sekyu
Siyám, Anthony McNab Favel, Shel Neufeld, Barry Truax, Janet Panic,
Hildegard
Westerkamp, Jeremy Williams, and the Eagle Song Dancers with Chief Bill
Williams.

'The artists featured on the CD represent a unique group of voices
coming together to support a truly significant project,' says macCormac.

'We want people to enjoy the music of these talented people and be
transported to a place where we can learn and share with each other.'

The CD Launch is held on September 14th at 7PM at the Vancouver East
Cultural Centre (1895 Venables Street). Admission is $12.00/$8.00 and
tickets are available at TicketMaster (604-280-3311 /
www.ticketmaster.ca) and at the door before the event.
