Local Artists

Now Showing

Here's what's coming next from Table Salt Productions!

How is this for an exciting 2018:  First, we produced an extremely successful three-week run of Legendary Ladies of Country in February!  Then, on May 5, 2018, we held a fundraiser for local non-profit Mossier, highlighting music by nationally and internationally acclaimed LGBTQ songwriters and artists, and featuring a veritable raft of favorite Table Salt performers.  We are proud to announce that we raised over $2,500 for this important local organization — and we could not have done it without all of you, so thank you!  Next, Table Salt's annual storytelling show at the Bryant-Lake Bowl in September raised over $1,400 for the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) to support their efforts to reunite migrant families who were so cruelly separated at our borders.  We also produced several performances of Country Roads, our John Denver tribute show, as well as several performances by our party band The Explainers.

Table Salt is on hiatus for November and December, but Jim and Dennis will both be performing in The Unscripted Minnesota Holiday.  Jim can also be seen in Mick Sterling's At Christmas, and Dennis can be seen in the Celtic Junction's holiday show, A Celtic Holiday Hooley.  In early 2019, keep your eyes open for a brand new Roots/Americana music project, and (hopefully!) a new folk music show!

What's coming up next?  Watch this space!

Some comments from Twin Cities reviewers:

The hilarious and touching vignettes span a whole range of experiences ... [there's] something for everyone in this delightful collection of songs and stories!

Brad Richason Examiner.com

I applaud this new company
for producing local,
new work!

Janet Preus HowWasTheShow.com

The nonstop volley of improvisational riffing [produces] enough manic energy and irreverent humor to keep even the most reluctant of minds buzzing with laughter.

Brad Richason City Pages

If you're a fan of John Denver, "Country Roads" is a must-see.... These are faithful interpretations of the songs we know and love, which Dennis sings beautifully!
