Christina Dolphin was born in County Dublin, Ireland. She took up the tin whistle at age 7 and went on to learn the flute a few years later. Her main teachers were Sarah Jane Woods and June McCormack.
After studying both nutrition and music at undergraduate level, Christina went on to complete a scholarship-funded master’s degree in ethnomusicology from University College Dublin, where she lectures occasionally on Irish traditional music.
Over the past decade, she has toured extensively; performing and teaching in Ireland, the UK, America, Canada, Europe, China, Southeast Asia and New Zealand.
She is a two-time All-Ireland champion, and also holds several other medals from various All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil competitions.
