The boys of Making County, Conor McAuley and Peter Kelly, began working together in 2016 to create a concept album following the life of a young man from Dublin, our protagonist, Fergal. They recorded and released the album 'The Ballad of Fergal', in December of last year.
Making County are two lovely lads from out-of-town. Fresh faced and naive, the folk-duo are trying to make waves on the scene by singing songs about fictional friends. Between their lovelorn progressions and mordant lyrics you find an image of youth's Ireland-lost, hopeful, and uniquely humorous. they are quickly developing a cult like following of fans and well wishers. They have been spotted playing around Dublin, Kildare and have held court at Body and Soul 2018.
