She is the resident harpist at the Vineyard Hotel and performs frequently in and around Cape Town. Christy-Lyn has a strong online following on her YouTube channel where she uploads weekly videos and gives live online concerts.
Growing up in a musical family, Christy-Lyn took classical music lessons from the age of 7. She excelled in classical piano, violin and singing throughout school and toured the world singing with the highly acclaimed Cape Town Youth Choir (previously Pro Cantu). Later Christy-Lyn taught herself to play the ukulele, and started taking classical harp lessons to accompany her singing. She surprised herself and her harp teachers with her swift progress which resulted in setting aside her other musical endeavours to focus primarily on harp and singing.
