Mary Margaret O'Hara

Curated by Perfume Genius


Recently declared a ‘cult hero’ by The Guardian, Perfume Genius has now invited Canadian songwriter and actress Mary Margaret O’Hara to Utrecht for a very rare live performance. Besides Mike Hadreas, her fans also include Radiohead and Michael Stipe (who declared her “a national treasure”), and in the past, O’Hara has collaborated with Morrissey, Tindersticks and This Mortal Coil.

O’Hara’s lifelong flirtations with music, with many collaborations and guest features on her résumé, have only spawned one full-length album so far, adding to the mystery that surrounds her. 1988’s iconic ‘Miss America’ contains eleven tracks of extremely heartfelt, wistful country balladry; a record which, over time, would turn out to be a very influential one.

Mary Margaret O'Hara will present at mostly improvised performance, in collaboration with Marcus O'Hara, Peggy Lee, and Aidan Closs.
