Haunted Windchimes

Get tickets by clicking here!

“Pueblo’s Best Export Since Steel”

The Haunted Windchimes sound is very traditional folk and blues and the songs

have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years

ago. The groups’ subtle and collective genius features original material written by

all four members.

It’s the vocal harmonies that really set them apart, a three-headed juggernaut of

Desirae Garcia (ukulele), Chela Lujan (banjo) and Inaiah Lujan (guitar). When

their voices blend, it is nothing short of beautiful. The sound is often moody and

melancholy, but it is always deeply affecting. That sound is embroidered by the

instrumental mastery of Mike Clark (harmonica, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and

concertina).

“Popular among the grey hairs, green hairs, purple hairs and all over.”

– Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion

“The Haunted Windchimes are a scarily good group.” – Daytrotter

“They recreate the vibe of rural 1930s music with a contemporary consciousness. The

rustic, honeyed harmonies are a delight.” – Bruce Sylvester, Sing Out! Magazine

“The Haunted Windchimes paint an evocative and compelling musical picture with

familiar hues of folk, blues and Americana.” – Cory Casciato, Denver Westword
