GEORGE Town's signature musical event will have musicians and possibly even onlookers dancing in the streets this weekend.
The three-day Tamar Valley Folk Festival will wave in a host of Australia's best folk acts with a welcoming concert at the town's RSL club tomorrow.
The real fun begins on Saturday with music in the streets, according to festival co- ordinator Chris Atwell.
"We introduce the festival to the community and visitors by putting music in the street from 10am to 12pm," Mrs Atwell said.
"A taste of the festival is available as you go about your shopping or breakfast, and it's free."
The festival will see George Town favourites such as Seagrass and Mick Flanagan supporting renowned Brisbane acts - and show headliners - Sunas and The Company.
"The festival is the longest-running and largest cultural event in the history of George Town," Mrs Atwell said.
"All venues are under cover and the facilities are first- class."
The festival will include more than 80 bands and 34 separate events in various venues throughout the town.
Weekend tickets are $70, Saturday tickets are $40, Sunday tickets are $30 - children enter for free.For more information, or to download a festival program, please visit the website www.tamarvalleyfolkfestival.com
