Toronto-based singer-songwriter Clela Errington joined us in the studio for an in-depth interview and some live songs on Folk Roots Radio Overtime on CFRU 93.3fm on May 2. In 2014, Clela released “More Love & Happiness”, one of our favourite albums of the year. This is what we said about the album at the time: “The freshness of the songwriting, beautiful harmonies (with daughter Jocelyn Barth), tasteful production from Alec Fraser and the varied musical styles makes it a joy for the ears. That we were unfamiliar with Clela’s work made it all that much more special to share her musical talent on air. Her music deserves to be heard and savoured.” Clela and I had a great conversation, and the live songs we’re just fabulous. Enjoy. Music: Clela Errington, “More Love & Happiness” from “More Love & Happiness” (2014, Self); Clela Errington “Home On High” (Live); Clela Errington “Shoulder To Lean On” (Live); Clela Errington “White Dove” from “More Love & Happiness” (2014, Self); Clela Errington “Country Squall” (Willie P.
