A Prairie Home Companion radio show host Garrison Keilor describes The Haunted Windchimes as “popular among the grey hairs, green hairs, purple hairs and all over.”

Regardless of your hair color, you won’t want to miss the Pueblo-based band when it performs its enchanting, vintage folk music at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at Cavalcade, 201 E. Aspen Ave., in Fruita,

“The Haunted Windchimes sound draws from traditional folk and American roots music. The songs have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years ago,” according to the band’s bio link at

“Grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin’, it lies in a nowhere land between distinct styles: It’s 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.”

The band formed in June 2006, according to its Facebook page, where its influences are listed as The Carter Family, Django Reinhardt, Jimmie Rogers, Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Blind Willie McTell and Hank Williams.

Band members are: Inaiah Lujan on vocals, guitar; Desirae Garcia on vocals, ukulele; Chela Lujan on vocals, banjo; Sean Fanning on upright bass; and Mike Clark on vocals, harmonica, mandolin, guitar and squeeze box.

“They recreate the vibe of rural 1930s music with a contemporary consciousness. The rustic, honeyed harmonies are a delight,” wrote Bruce Sylvester of Sing Out! Magazine on the band’s website.

Tickets are $15. Call 260-5413 or go to for tickets.
