Ruari Dall O Cathain was born in Derry nearly a hundred years before O Carolan. Also known as Blind Roger O’Keane, this wealthy and brilliant harpist later moved to Scotland where he traveled about the country with a full retinue of servants. But one day he chanced alone at the home of one Lady Eglinton who, mistaking him for an itinerant musician, demanded a tune, whereupon Ruari Dall stalked off in high dudgeon. This tune, Give Me Your Hand, is the culmination of the reconciliation. Listen carefully and you can hear the words in the tune, “Come give me your hand, come give me your hand...”.

Musicians of genius create a blend, harmonize, enhance, and express the essence of a song to move the listener to a most lovely place. This is it!
