Despite a rainy day close to a thousand people turned out to what many are calling the best Shir Madness ever. Here’s what some of our happy punters had to say:

What a great festival! Well worth leaving the warmth and sun of Bargara in Queensland to enjoy such a celebration. Phil & Virginia Manser

Yesterday’s extravaganza was the best Shir ever. Plenty of variety, dancing in the aisles and great music. Robert and Sylvia Kohn

Congratulations it was amazing; the acts, the organisation and the production and back of house teams. Naomi Elias

Great choice of performers. Comfortable, dry, big enough venue. I enjoyed all the performances that I saw. Leah Bloomfield

 I’m still on a high from the whole weekend from Nefesh Mountain over Shabbat to all the amazing performers at Shir. George Mordechai

S54-11 Seg.3 Superb entertainment from musicians such as the Alma Zygier Quartet who received a standing ovation, Alexis Fishman who brilliantly resurrected Amy Winehouse, Israeli Shai Shriki and top-billing Jewgrass New Yorkers, Nefesh Mountain got everyone dancing in the aisles and in their seats!!
