"Fresh and intoxicating" - FolkWorld "A formidable calling card" - The Irish Times "Youthful, energetic...well-crafted" - Irish Music Magazine The Crooked Picture is a dazzling debut album by the Irish band Reelan. While all of the tunes and songs are newly composed by Sandie Purcell, the band's fiddle player, the music has a strong tie to the momentum of the tradition and the whole band have created a new, fresh sound with their arrangements. A large selection of the tunes from Sandie's first publication, 101 Original Compositions of Irish Traditional Music, have been recorded on the album along with a number of her original songs. Andy Meaney's energetic guitar playing drives the wonderful melodies, with skillful playing by Sharon O' Leary on concertina and Aoife Mullen also on fiddle. The haunting voice is that of Rossagh Purcell, the lead singer, with additional backing vocals by Sandie.
