The Haunted WindchimesThe Haunted Windchimes, a five-piece band from Pueblo, Colorado, play new songs that sound old – not old like a Ford Pinto, old like a Model T – classic, ageless, sublime.

The band’s music is often haunting, and their gorgeous harmonies have an ethereal, windchime quality.

Each gusheh has a unique character, feeling, and history to it, which has been passed on orally from generation to generation.
