GUEST,Val Contact for permission? Flower of Scot. (7) RE: Contact for permission? Flower of Scot. 01 Mar 07

[blasted finger-slip & computer that does what it's told rather than what I wanted...]

To continue...

...unless there is some documented release from the copyright holder, I do not feel it is proper to publish an arrangment (even though "publishing" in this case would be limited to a club newsletter).

So - does anybody know where I could find:

1. the current contact information for whomever holds the copyright to Flower of Scotland,


2. where to find a copy of an official release or proclamation of public-use rights (if any such document exists)?

Not looking for a list of all the people/places/etc where the song has been peformed without any legal consequence. I understand it is very popular and has been widely adopted. But the management of the club insists that there be NO question of copyright issues for any songs distributed through club channels.

I'm still hoping the message to The Corries web site will bring a response so a dialog can be opened, however I figured I'd try here as well.

Thank you in advance
