The KCP Presents Performing Arts Series has announced the 2023-24 season, showcasing world-class international touring acts in the Northeast Kingdom. Renowned for bringing big city entertainment to Vermont’s small towns, KCP Presents will host a philharmonic orchestra from Bulgaria, a British chorale group, Swedish folk singers, and a Quebecois circus along with premiere practitioners of American music traditions including roots, jazz, and doo-wop.

Singer/songwriter Amythyst Kiah, dubbed “one of Americana’s great up-and-coming secrets,” by Rolling Stone, will play at Vermont State University-Johnson on Sunday, September 30. A member of “Our Native Daughters,” Rhiannon Giddens’ women-of-color supergroup, Kiah combines iconoclastic alt-rock with old-time Americana.

Two iconic acoustic groups, “Hawktail” and legendary Swedish duo “Väsen,” will play in St. Johnsbury on Saturday, October 28, for a genre-busting double bill of virtuoso newgrass. “Hawktail” and “Väsen” represent decades of traditional music revitalized with innovations inspired by their individual and collective careers.

On Saturday, December 2, New York a cappella vocalists “Naturally 7” will come to St. Johnsbury with their performance. Compared to “Boy II Men” and “Jodeci,” “Naturally 7’s” deep musical lineage incorporates gospel, doo-wop, barbershop, and beatboxing.

Grammy-winners “Time for Three” (TF3), personifying the intersecting soundscapes of modern pop, Americana, and classical, will perform a holiday program in St. Johnsbury on Sunday, December 10. Featuring holiday favorites that stand the test of time, TF3 features eclectic arrangements of classics.

The first KCP Presents show of 2024 will be the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra, Wednesday, February 7, in Lyndonville. Founded in 1892, the national orchestra of Bulgaria has long established itself as one of Europe’s leading cultural institutions, representative of evolving contemporary musical culture.

Bria Skonberg and Benny Benack III, with trumpet and voice, will be in St. Johnsbury on Tuesday, March 26, performing the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Bing Crosby and Dean Martin.

On Wednesday, April 17, “Flip Fabrique of Quebec” will close out the KCP Presents 2023-24 season in Lyndonville. The Quebec-based circus company is renowned around the world for its dreamlike productions.
