My band is getting ready to record our first cd. Most of the music is original, but we have two songs of uncertain ownership. The first is Banks of Sicily, which appears in the mudcat archive but is not attributed to anyone. I have rewritten the lyrics to change the location and time to afghanistan now, so would need permission for that if there is an identifiable owner. The second is Peat Bog Soldiers which was written in a german concentration camp in the early 30s.
I haven't a clue how to find the owners. I live in Canada. Suggestions??
