About The Salt Cellars

The Salt Cellars was formed in 2016 by Virginia deCarle and Rob Bersan, an independent duo
hailing from the south side of Algonquin Park. They blend the sounds of Folk, Blues and Jazz
to create a sound that is uniquely their own. They have played in many venues in different parts
of Ontario and were Showcase Artists at the 2023 Folk Music Ontario conference.
A bit of Salt Cellars recent history:
In 2017, The Salt Cellars introduced their music to Ron Kapitain (harmonica), and
invited him to join them. They recorded an album titled “Truth” at Anax Junius Music
Studios in Maynooth, ON (owned by Richard Joudrey and Anne Wilde) with recording
technician/Bassist Richard Joudrey (Blue Peter fame) in 2018. Following the recording of
their first album, Richard Joudrey (bass), Brendon Burgess (drums) and Anne Wilde
(backing vocals) became part of The Salt Cellars band family. As a six piece they released
a second album at Anax Junius Music Studios titled “Crooked Tree”, in September 2019,
and their 3rd album titled, “Inside These Walls”, was released August 2022. “Inside These
Walls” features guest Canadian musicians Jane Bunnett, a multi JUNO award winning
member of Maqueque, and Hugh Marsh, a jazz violinist who has played with, among
others, Bruce Cockburn, Loreena Mckennitt, Kevin Hearn and The Rheostatics.
The Salt Cellars have made several independently funded Music videos produced by
Videographer Peter Chatterton (“You Don’t Know Me”, “Our Favourite Lake”, “Wanna
Be With You” and “Silence”) and Harold Eastman (“Inside These Walls”)
