A seasoned singer, she’s sung in many musical genres with her favourites being Celtic, Folk, Pop, Musical Theatre and Rock. As a songwriter she writes, records and releases a new song every 3 months. You can hear some of her original work here.
From 2017 to 2019 she ran a successful Celtic show in Cape Town called ‘Christine and the Kilts’ where she aimed to introduce Celtic music to South African radio audiences with a podcast called ‘Under the Kilt’, which was nominated for Best Podcast in the South African Radio Awards 2021.
