Bruce Cockburn, Buffy Sainte-Marie among artists featured on benefit CD

(VANCOUVER) UTS'AM / WITNESS launches its first CD. 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.

A soundscape artist, macCormac performed at the launch with Xálek' Sekyu
Siyám, Anthony McNab Favel, Shel Neufeld, Sandy Scofield, Barry Truax,
Hildegard Westerkamp, Jeremy Williams, and the Eagle Song Dancers with
Chief Bill Williams.

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.
The project introduces people from all walks of life to Coast Salish
tradition by inviting them to 'witness' the events that shape our lives.

The Wilderness Education Program ( provides the impetus
for students and teachers to make a personal connection with wilderness,
and inspires them to make caring for Wild Nature part of their lives.

              Both projects were founded in part by Order of Canada
recipient and legendary mountaineer John Clarke. A renowned wilderness
educator, John 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

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

              '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.'
