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.

Aoife O'Donovan with special guests Hawktail
Date: Friday, September 24, 2021
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Grammy award-winning songwriter and musician Aoife O'Donovan is one of the most sought-after singers and songwriters of her generation. She has released three critically-acclaimed solo albums, is co-founder of the bands I'm With Her and Crooked Still, is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile, and spent a decade contributing to the radio variety shows Live From Here and A Prairie Home Companion. Hawktail is a rising Americana "supergroup"ť and includes members of Crooked Still, Punch Brothers and the I'm with Her house band. She has a chill-inducing vocal that shines, haunting you with each word and phrase she spins within the loom of her storied songs. Evocative and siren-like, smoke-tinged but tender and inviting. O'Donovan has a range that is enviable to most, she elevates and opens it only at moments when it is most needed for full impact.
