Which of our seasons do you like the best?


we can help!

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.

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Celtic-American "super group" RUNA moves beyond Irish folk music into Americana and roots, offering a thrilling new take on tradition by interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco and blues. RUNA continues a traditional culture in a modern age. The backbone of its signature roots sound is created from the musical and geographical diversity of its individual band members: vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia; Dublin-born guitarist Fionan de Barra; Cheryl Prashker of Canada, on percussion; Jake James of New York, on the fiddle; and Caleb Edwards of Nashville, on mandolin and vocals. Celebrating 10 years, RUNA's creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk and earns them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.
