The Harp Society of Tasmania's annual Harp Island event was held at Grindelwald over the long weekend.
The event is in its 15th year and celebrates the musical talent of harpists from across Tasmania and the world.
Harp Island Coordinator Judy Cress-Morris said the event was unique to Australia and possibly the world.
"We've got one participant from New Zealand, two from the mainland and the rest from Tasmania," she said.
"It brings in people from all over the state, the mainland and the world.
"We love to talk about the harp, you can't stop us in fact."
About 29 harpists took part in the weekend with a wide range of harp variations.
"It's an excellent opportunity to come and listen to a wide variety of harps and music," Ms Cress-Morris said.
This year's special guest tutor was Brazilian harpist Cristina Braga, along with her husband, bassist Ricardo Medeiros.
Braga spent the weekend teaching avid young harpists more about the instrument and the passion behind playing it.
"I saw a picture of a harp in a children's book when I was three and I said 'I want to play the harp'," Braga said.
"I wanted to be an angel, then I discovered it's much easier to play the harp than to be an angel."
The weekend was played out with a concert held at the Aspect Tamar Valley Resort.
Braga and Medeiros crafted a piece particularly for the concert.
"Cristina asked me to write the piece for this event - it was an incentive to make something that would move people," Medeiros said.
"What's interesting about not only this piece but any piece of music is that music is not static.
"Every person plays a piece differently, according to his or her personality, according to the moment."
This was the second year the Harp Island event has been held at Grindelwald.
"It meets our needs quite well because we can have residential students and non-residential students," Ms Cress-Morris said.
"We've split the room into two so we have a pop-up shop."
