Fritillaries (formerly known as Rainy Day Woman) are a folk/Americana duo based in Bristol, UK. The duo are made up of Hannah Pawson (vocals, songwriting, guitar, banjo, harmonium) and Gabriel Wynne (backing vocals songwriting, guitar, mandolin). They have a debut eponymous album out on 15th July 2022 under Pear O' Legs Records[1].Their music has been featured on BBC 6 Music (Cerys Matthews, Gideon Coe), BBC Introducing[2] and chosen as a Fresh Fave by BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson's Fresh on the Net.

The duo are UK folk festival regulars, starting with being finalists in Purbeck Valley Folk Festival's ‘Purbeck Rising’ competition in 2019[3]. Festival appearances include Gate to Southwell, El Dorado and Nozstock[4][5]. RnR magazine’s review of their June 2021 headline show at The Musician (Leicester) described their performance as "A delight... an emotional and intense music that needs concentration and the audience obliges, hanging onto and appreciating every word, as shown by the prolonged applause between songs."[6]

Folk Radio featured their Little Bird (2021) single release as song of the day; “it really is a beautiful single, one that I’m more than happy to return to time and again… Let’s hope they have an album out soon”[7]. Fatea Records described the 2021 single as "intimate and epic, with a sense of longing that is almost tangible", whilst BBC Radio Bristol commented that it was "such a joy".

The duo changed their name to Fritillaries ahead of their announcement of the new album; "being forever tied to a Bob Dylan song is pretty basic and quite limiting, plus it makes finding us on the internet needlessly difficult". On the name change, Hannah explained that her mother sent her a poem "about digging through the dirt, sifting through the troubles of years, and planting flowers. We talk a lot about time, pace and the seasonal nature of creativity; things need time to lie fallow, take love, time and patience, and often grow when you’re not looking."[8]
