With the release of their brand-new 11th studio recording, Sunrise, renowned Canadian Celtic-rock group, multiple JUNO nominated and nine-time East Coast Music Award winners, Rawlins Cross is hitting the road and touring Atlantic Canada this October and November.
“It’s been a LONG two and a half years since we last stepped on a stage to play music together,” says Rawlins Cross band member Ian McKinnon. “Last fall, we made use of our downtime during the pandemic to gather in Nova Scotia and record a batch of new songs. We can’t wait to get out and share the new music with our friends and fans!”

Over the years, Rawlins Cross has toured extensively on three continents including a performance representing Canada at the Summit of the Americas in Santiago, Chile, a nationally televised Canada Day performance on Parliament Hill in Ottawa and a headlining show at the Skagen Festival in Denmark.
