The same goes for their upcoming Myrna Loy concert 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 4.

The album’s evocative musical landscapes are inspired by Montana’s beauty.

“We’re an instrumental duo, but our music is really melody-driven that has a singable quality that just connects with Montana,” and how we’re shaped by our environment,” says cellist Maren Haynes Marchesini.

“A lot of our songs have a sense of physical landscape, but some of them are more of an emotional landscape,” says guitarist Kate Plummer.

“Half the concert will be Hemispheres, and we’re bringing some new material and guests to play with us. The other half will be Amber’s music.”
