More than 2,000 people of all ages packed Sydney’s  Bondi Pavilion complex to experience the musical joys of the 2nd annual Sydney Jewish Music Festival “Shir Madness”.

The weather was kind and music lovers enjoyed more than 40 acts on 5 stages – both indoor and outdoor – all day and night.

Foodstalls filled the pavilion courtyard and the Inheritance arts exhibition was also a hit and kids bopped to the songs of Go Seek.

Festival director Nicola Ossher said it was fabulous the festival was ‘pumping’ right to the last act…

“Every venue was packed from the start… from Tim Freedman’s amazing set to Old Man River, Keppie Coutts and Deborah Conway and then Israeli legend Mosh ben Ari closed the festival beautifully at night.”

The festival featured visiting London all-women group the London Klezmer Quarter and US a cappella group The Western Wind. Other big name musicians included Simon Tedeschi, Melbourne’s Barons of Tang, Dereb the Ambassador and Monsieur Camembert.
