The Rawling Brothers are coming to town for a night of great music and fun.

They have been playing music since they were kids when they traveled and sang with their family. Since then they have been involved in many music venues, often together and sometimes apart.

Influenced by old time country, gospel music, bluegrass, folk and even rock, their five albums display their diverse talent to create a sound they call “Rocky Mountain Country.”

Their albums include “Tonic Water”, which is filled with the acoustic sound that has become their trademark; “Chapel Rock Reunion” which includes ten Gospel songs; “Hand Me Downs, Volume One” which was the 2004 Vibe Award winner for best country bluegrass album in Canada followed by “Hand Me Downs, Volume Two” and “A Window in my Basement”, with all songs written and sang by Doug Rawling after the family lost their father to cancer.

With a loyal fan base in the Prairie provinces and Midwestern states, their albums have sold over 50,000 copies and their music has graced the airwaves in Canada, the United States and Europe.

The Rawlings share a deep love of music and feel blessed by God to be able to do what they love to do.

The Rawlings will do a live Christmas concert at the Ponoka Legion on Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. The concert is being sponsored by the Alberta Country Gospel Opry and a free will offering will be taken to cover costs.
