The Celts

When tasked with coming up with a new layout for The Celts' site, we initially began with a more traditional, multi-page style. However, after getting a better understanding of the project it became clear that this site was needed to highlight a single show: the nationally touring Christmas with the Celts program that was featured on PBS a few years ago. So we switched gears and came up with a single-page layout using the Bootstrap framework for responsive design.

This was the first time that we'd integrated Drupal into a single-page framework and it posed some interesting changes, as Drupal is definitely not designed with this concept in mind. We looked at a few modules that were built to fill this gap, but ultimately they proved to be too unwieldy or unnecessarily complicated to do what we needed. So we ended up building a custom theme that fit the needs of the layout while still working well in the Drupal CMS.

Project Overview

The Celts are a Nashville-based Celtic-rock band that tours nationwide with a Christmas-themed show, called Christmas with the Celts. Their existing site was growing stale and the band's management was in need of something more up-to-date and that would be easier to manage, storing various photos, video, and audio tracks along with a current touring schedule.
