Singer in clubs given a wave (8)


I believe the answer is:


'singer' is the definition.
(I know that caroller is a type of singer)

'clubs given a wave' is the wordplay.
'clubs' becomes 'c' (abbreviation in card games).
'given' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'wave' becomes 'roller' (roller is a kind of wave).

'in' is the link.

(Other definitions for caroller that I've seen before include "that makes Christmas music" , "Singer" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
