Fritillaries are a folk/Americana pop duo made up of Hannah Pawson (vocals, guitar, banjo) and Gabriel Wynne (guitar, mandolin). Musically, they incorporate elements of the English folk tradition, Appalachian string band and Americana. Hannah writes from a queer female perspective, with many songs about refugee and human rights issues from her background as a social worker and activist. As 'Rainy Day Woman' they played GTSF 2021.
“A genuine joy live...bright, light and effortlessly gorgeous. Hannah and Gabriel pull off something magical every time... A real joy to watch, without fail.”
Folkroom Records, London
The duo been playing music together since 2013 when they were 16. In 2019, they performed at Birmingham Symphony Hall, toured Australia and were finalists in ‘Purbeck Rising’. In 2021 they played sold out shows in London (Green Note), Bristol (Southbank) and Birmingham (Kitchen Garden Cafe); were played on BBC 6 Music and announced their eponymous debut album with Pear O’ Legs Records.
“A delight...theirs is 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."
