Come out and hear great local music while supporting ALMA’s work in bringing quality live music to Alamosa! The annual ALMA and Friends concert is on Saturday, February 11 at 7:00 p.m. at Society Hall, at 400 Ross Avenue, in Alamosa, CO. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. for light refreshments and a cash bar.
Every year, local musicians contribute their talents for an ALMA membership drive concert. ALMA memberships help to make the Sundays at Six concert series in Cole Park a free service to all and help to fund ALMA’s regular programming and other live music events throughout the Valley.
We are pleased to announce that The Haunted Windchimes, hailing from Pueblo, CO, are the performers for this year’s ALMA and Friends concert.
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. 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. 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,” writes Bill Reed of The Colorado Springs Gazette. 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).
Admission is free for ALMA 2017 members and $20 for general admission. No advance tickets are for sale, so come early to grab a seat!
