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. Rumor has it that they came by their name in an abandoned roadhouse after sharing a jug of potent moonshine. Somehow, the name fits. The band’s music is often haunting, and their gorgeous harmonies have an ethereal, windchime quality. “The ghost of classic blues mingles with a pop sensibility that’s given an edge by incredibly touching harmonies,” says the Pueblo Chieftain. “The Windchimes are, beyond a reasonable doubt, one of Colorado’s most significant musical treasures,” says the Colorado Springs Independent. Word is beginning to spread beyond Colorado. “Popular among the gray hairs, green hairs, purple hairs, and all over,” Garrison Keillor says. “They recreate the vibe of rural 1930s music with a contemporary consciousness,” declares Sing Out! Magazine. “The rustic, honeyed harmonies are a delight.”

The Haunted Windchimes have performed on A Prairie Home Companion, and they’ve already attracted a faithful following in the folk-blues-bluegrass-American roots underground. They deserve a faithful following because they make music worth listening to – sometimes moody and melancholy, sometimes sly and insinuating, always distinctive. With Desirae Garcia on ukulele, Chela Lujan on banjo, Inaiah Lujan on guitar, Mike Clark on harmonica, guitar, and mandolin, and Sean Fanning on standup bass, the band plays mostly originals – but you’d almost swear you’ve heard the songs before, maybe in an abandoned roadhouse over a jug of moonshine!
