The Dardanelles

The Dardanelles have slowly been tweaking and redefining traditional music since forming in 2005. They’ve brought their energetic folk tunes, ballads and reels to audiences across Canada, the US and as far afield as Australia. I had the honour this past winter of designing and creating their internet livingroom.

The site was built with WordPress and features the awesome Portfolio Slideshow Pro from MadebyRaygun, and MP3-jPlayer serves up the Flash-free audio for all you iPad surfers out there. Same as usual, I started with Victoria Park, my fork of Automattic’s Toolbox theme. Many thanks to band member and fellow designer Matthew for gently poking and prodding to make sure we yielded the best possible result.
