Studio H Sessions - video feature - Catherine MacLellan

A video feature on Prince Edward Island singer songwriter Catherine MacLellan

It's been quite a journey for Catherine MacLellan over the past few years. The daughter of the late Canadian songwriting icon Gene MacLellan, Catherine is following her own path toward success. With a voice like honey dusted in gold, MacLellan shares the gentle darkness of her lyrics, which are sometimes countrified, sometimes lamentful, and sometimes tinged with joy. She's already been recognized with East Coast Music Awards, PEI Music Awards and Canadian Folk Music Awards. After hearing Catherine there will be no doubt as to why she has become one of the most celebrated new singer-songwriters in Canada, and around the world, by her contemporaries and media alike.

Catherine dropped by our CBC Radio Studio H in Halifax for an intimate sampling of some new material. In the band, Reg Ballagh on drums; Remi Arsenault on bass; Chris Gauthier electric guitar, and Meaghan Blanchard backing vocals.
