New California Line is a traditional bluegrass trio based out of the Santa Cruz Mountains and southern Santa Clara Valley of California. Led by powerful, polished vocal harmonies and driving instrumentals, New California Line seamlessly transcends traditional bluegrass and country music creating a sound that could only emerge from verdant mountains of Northern California. 

The trio is comprised of Cerise Burns, Dale Burns, and Robert Cornelius. Although relative new comers to the California Bay Area, Cerise and Dale have been traveling the country playing bluegrass for the past decade. As a result, their tight vocal harmonies embody a sound reminiscent of the great bluegrass and country duets of the 1930’s and 40’s. The trio is rounded out by the tasteful, high energy banjo playing and vocals of Robert Cornelius. Robert is an accomplished banjo player, whose crisp, high precision banjo runs and tenor vocals have made him staple in the California bluegrass community for more than two decades. Combined, the dynamic trio provides a captivating and entertaining show guaranteed to get the crowd on their feet.
