Description: Give Me Your Hand (Tabhair Dom Do Lamh) by Ruairi Dall O’Cathain (blind Rory O’Cahan,1570-1650), an Irish harper who emigrated to Scotland. He wrote this tune for Lady Eglinton in about 1603 after she apologized for insulting him. The tune is sometimes mistakenly attributed to O’Carolan, who was born 20 years after O’Cathain’s death.

This song is often played at Irish weddings and is sometimes called the Irish Wedding Song.
Key: D Major
