7 SUMMITS WELCOMES BASE CAMP ARTISTS TO NEPAL

The 7 Summits foundation today welcomes Clint McCune, American based musician, and friend John Mower, American sound technician, both of Redmond, Washington, to Nepal. McCune and Mower will join together with six Nepalese artists for the first ever concert at Mt. Everest Base Camp on March 23, 2011. The “Save the Himalayas” festival at Base Camp kicks off a series of concerts focused on raising awareness about the consequences of global warming and the impact it will have on the Himalaya Glaciers and the people of Himalayan region.

“With the arrival of Clint McCune and John Mower, we witness a tangible example of an international union committed to addressing the issues of global warming in Nepal,” said AC Sherpa, President of the 7 Summits Foundations. “This marks an important step in continuing the efforts established by the National Trust for Nature Conservation and the international community in the 2009 Copenhagen Summit.”

Sherpa will be leading the trek to Base Camp before attempting to set a new mountaineering record by summiting Mt. Everest three times in one climbing season.
