Rawlins Cross is an East Coast Canadian Celtic-rock group that formed in the late 1980s. The band fuses Celtic traditional music with rock, pop and worldbeat music.

With eleven commercial recordings, including the gold-selling Reel ā€˜nā€™ Roll (1993), the band has earned multiple JUNO nominations and won 10 East Coast Music Awards, including most recently (May 2023), the Dr. Helen Creighton Lifetime Achievement Award.

The band is made up of members Dave Panting (guitar/mandolin), Geoff Panting (keyboards/accordian), Ian McKinnon (Highland pipes/tin whistle/bodhran), Brian Bourne (bass/Chapman stick), Howie Southwood and Joey Kitson (vocals).

The Sunrise Tour promotes the release of their 2022 album, of the same name.
