Hailing from Colorado, the band “The Haunted Windchimes” has perfected old-time sound and harmonies. The group will bring their distinct sound to Cowley College’s Robert Brown Theatre for a concert at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 14.
The Haunted Windchimes’ sound draws from traditional folk and American roots music. Their songs are not quite bluegrass or blues or country. Still, there are elements of all those in songs that paint pictures of empty train stations and nights of passing a jug of moonshine around. 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).
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, guitar and mandolin) and the standup bass foundation of Sean Fanning.
