Photos: Day 2 of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival

Saturday's headliner may have cancelled, but crowds had plenty of impressive music to take in throughout the second day of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival.

The grass in front of the workshop stages was packed as festival goers watched collaborations from acts including Andrew Bird, Brasstronaut, Great Lake Swimmers, Fish & Bird, and Jay Malinowski.

A tribute to Pete Seeger, featuring artists including Alejandro Escovedo, was filled lawn-chair-to-lawn-chair as listeners remembered the late musical icon.

The evening lineup also had plenty to offer, with some of the best sets of the day coming from Brasstronaut and Born Ruffians at Stage 3, where audiences were up and dancing.

The volume turned up on the main stage for Alejandro Escovedo's performance, and Noura Mint Seymali did an excellent job of stepping into the headlining set of the evening.

The festival wraps up today, with performances still to come from artists including Portland's Typhoon, the Lost Bayou Ramblers, Sean Kuti & Egypt 80, and Amos Lee.
