There was barely a quiet moment in George Town yesterday as the Tamar Valley Folk Festival rolled into its second day.
The middle day of the three-day program - which wraps up today - was brimming with spontaneous music.
From 10am, musicians had set up shop on the streets of the town and picked up their instruments.
Festival co-organiser Chris Atwell said one of her favourite parts of the festival was watching virtual strangers become friends.
``They don't know each other, but they'll walk up to someone who is playing and start playing along with them and have a jam, it's great to watch,'' Mrs Atwell said.
The street music and workshops of the day gave way to two concerts at night.
One of the youngest bands on the agenda, Hobart's The Blue Mosquitoes, are also veterans of the event.
Guitarist Chris Boon described the festival as a tradition for the four-piece band, which was formed in 2006.
``People who come to this festival are folk music fans and it's always great to play to a folk crowd of Tasmanians,'' Boon said. ``There's always a lot of energy and it's always a lot of fun.''
