The Northeast Kingdom Chamber is the tri-county's largest and only fully staffed chamber, handling travel promotion, community/economic development, legislative/governmental relations, business networking and promotion of regional projects.

The chamber, based out of St. Johnsbury with about 300 members, is conveniently located at the Green Mountain Mall, across from JCPenney.

We believe the best businesses in the Northeast Kingdom are Northeast Kingdom Chamber members.

Session Americana Concert
Date: Saturday, October 23, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Session Americana is a rock band in a tea cup, or possibly a folk band in a whiskey bottle. This band/collective of talented musicians craft a musical experience unlike any other. On stage is a collapsible bar table wired with microphones, a vintage suitcase recast as a kick drum, an old Estey field organ, a pre-war parlor guitar, a mandocello and all of its smaller siblings and more. The anything-could-happen feel of a Session Americana show depends on craft tha's not accidental or easily won; they bring a kind of ease and genuineness to this timeless music, sometimes presenting the latest batch of original songs, sometimes reaching back into depths of the American "song bagť."

Patti Casey with The Wicked Fine Players
Date: Saturday, November 6, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Patti Casey is a master of simple, pure vocal understatement, a one-in-a-million voice, nationally recognized as an award-winning songwriter, and musically at home in a beautiful array of traditional and contemporary genres. Her songwriting has taken her to stages across the US, from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival to North Carolina's MerleFest, to Kerrville Folk Festival, to A Prairie Home Companion, where her voice has garnered national attention and she has returned to her native Green Mountain State of Vermont with many awards and accolades. Springing from a deep love of traditional Americana music, Patti immersed herself in bluegrass for many years, and was a founding member, songwriter, and lead singer for Vermont's beloved Bluegrass Gospel Project. She then spent nearly a decade touring nationally with the legendary folk ensemble Woods Tea Company, where her songwriting, singing, flute playing, rhythm guitar work, and seated foot percussion found their way to new areas all across the US.
Highland Center for the Arts, Greensboro
Le Vent du Nord Concert
Date: Saturday, November 20, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Highland Center for the Arts is proud to welcome Le Vent du Nord back to our indoor Main Stage. This award-winning and highly acclaimed band is a leading force in Quebec's progressive Francophone folk movement. The group's vast repertoire draws from both traditional sources and original compositions while enhancing its hard-driving soulful music (rooted in the Celtic diaspora) with a broad range of global influences. Since its inception in August 2002, Le Vent du Nord has enjoyed meteoric success, performing more than 1,800 concerts over five continents and racking up several prestigious awards, including a Grand Prix du Disque Charles Cros, two Junos (Canada's Grammys), a Canadian Folk Music Award, and Artist of the Year at the North American Folk Alliance Annual Gala. The group exhibits great finesse and flexibility, appearing regularly on Canadian, American, French, and UK television and radio and participating in a wide variety of special musical projects. Not content with standard approaches to tradition, Le Vent du Nord has also created a symphonic concert that, according to Voir Montreal, "puts all traditional folk naysayers to shame."ť On stage these friends create intense, joyful, and dynamic live performances that expand the bounds of tradition in striking global directions. This is the modern sound of tradition, a music of the here and now. Tickets are $25 - $40.
