Rawlins Cross coming to Pictou County as part of 30th anniversary tour

WESTVILLE ROAD, N.S.

Celtic music act Rawlins Cross will include the Pictou County Wellness Centre as part of their 30th anniversary this year with a Maritime Tour and the release of a new single, “Love Comes Around the Corner.”

The group will play Nov. 8 at the Pictou County Wellness Centre, as part of a 12-date tour of the Maritimes. Their performance will be upstairs at the facility, and tied to the Pinty’s Grand Slam curling event being hosted at the PCWC.

Rawlins Cross was formed in St. John’s, Newfoundland in the late 1980s by songwriting brothers Dave Panting (guitar and mandolin), Geoff Panting (keyboards and accordion) and Ian McKinnon (highland pipes, tin whistle and bodhran).

“We’re really looking forward to hitting the road again this summer and fall to share some brand-new music with our friends and fans,” says band member Ian McKinnon, in a media release.

“It’s crazy to consider that it’s been 30 years since we named the band and starting gigging around St. John’s. I can honestly say that the band has never sounded better. And we’re still having a load of fun playing together.”

With the upcoming release of its 10th studio recording, Flying Colours in November, Rawlins Cross continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of a dedicated global fan-base developed over an acclaimed career.
