A nationally touring indie folk duo is coming to Havre Aug. 8, joining local bands in the lineup for this year's Sounds on the Square.

Ouray, Colorado-based duo, You Knew Me When, will perform that Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m., following next week's performer, Havre's Dane MacRae & Friends performing Aug. 1.

The series wraps up Aug. 15 with local blues-rock band Shovels and Shotguns.

The Havre Area Chamber of Commerce puts on the weekly summer concert series, sponsored by NorthWestern Energy and Triangle Communications.

You Knew Me When's Cie and Karisa Hoover left their Nashville home - and full-time jobs - six years ago to start a one-year tour of the nation, a press release about the Havre performance said, and then never stopped touring.

Ever since, "they have been serving up their craft-brewed compositions," the release said, referring to more than 190 craft brewery performances in the United Steas and Canada.

The duo is on the road promoting their third album, "Into the Looking Glass." "Outfitted with an array of instruments, You Knew Me When are a Colorado-based duo that presents a full band sound. While blending their vocals, Karisa, who previously served as a tenured Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele, glockenspiel and percussive elements, as Cie, who spent several years as the Global Events Manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and other rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style and live show that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a rock 'n' roll mentality."

The release describes the band's new album as, "at times upbeat and folksy, at times brooding and reflective, the album aims at introspection for the couple's continued journey while sharing experiences gained from over five years of nonstop touring."

Physical and digital copies of You Knew Me When's albums are available at http://www.youknewmewhen.com/. The albums are also available on iTunes, Amazon, and other online music stores. Their songs also are available online via Pandora, Spotify, iTunes Music and other online radio sources.
