陳桂英(1948生),廣播歌仔戲藝人。出生於高雄。周歲時因高燒罹患小兒麻痺,以致不良於行。後因緣際會拜許南舟為師,走上傳統藝術之路。1964年隨其師開始走唱生涯;1965年隨宋伯學藝,後隨之到鳳鳴電台演唱,開啟她廣播歌仔戲的生涯,《殺子報》、《義僕救子》、《萬飛龍大破青竹寺》、《秦世美反奸》等為拿手劇目。由於陳桂英一人可飾生旦淨丑,聲腔唸白維妙維肖,唱腔又多變圓潤,深受觀眾喜愛。她對於歌仔戲的傳承更是不遺餘力,1989年高雄市楠梓國中成立了歌仔戲社團,便開始於楠梓國中、五權、七權國小、高雄女中、三信家商以及高雄師大歌仔戲社團擔任聲腔指導老師,1994-1998年,擔任高雄市教育局暑期舉辦的歌仔戲教師研習營之指導老師,於歌仔戲的薪傳工作上不遺餘力。
