Put Your Hand In My Hand

The Spiritual and Musical Connections of Catherine and Gene MacLellan

  Author:   Harvey Sawler    

Put Your Hand in My Hand is the personal, lyrical story of the relationship between one of Canada’s most beloved singer-songwriters and his daughter, a talented musical artist.

Gene MacLellan’s contribution to the Canadian songbook is legendary. He penned top-forty hits, including “Snowbird,” “Bidin’ My Time,” and “Put Your Hand in the Hand,” and his compositions vaulted the careers of international stars such as Anne Murray. In 2004, his daughter Catherine, a Juno award winner, three-time Canadian Folk Award Winner, and two-time ECMA winner, released her debut album to critical acclaim. As the story’s principal narrator, along with experienced biographer Harvey Sawler, this anticipated memoir paints an intimate portrait of a complex man whose words and melodies left us wanting more than he was able to give, before he took his life in 1995 at the age of fifty-six. Includes song lyrics and a colour insert of family photos.
