If there’s one man that the HRH AOR Festival took to their hearts, that man was Kip Winger. Any one who has seen one of his solo acoustic shows (and god knows, he plays enough of them) knows exactly what to expect, and tonight Kip doesn’t disappoint.
Given the bands on the lineup, when the announcement was made that Kip would be appearing I wasn’t sure if it would be with a band or, as it turned out, just him, a 12 string acoustic guitar and a microphone.
Technical issues were handled with humour as Kip engaged with the crowd, making us feel part of something intimate, something special. This is the stuff that festival memories are made of, the highlight being a huge singalong for closing track Seventeen.
