'S e fear den luchd-ciùil tradaiseanta as ainmeile ann an Alba a th' ann an Phil Coineagan MBE. Fhuair e oideachadh clasaigeach air an fhìdheall agus am bogsa-ciùil a chluich. An dèidh sin bha e fhèin agus a bhràthair nam buill dhen chòmhlan 'Silly Wizard', agus chluich iad mar sin fad deich bliadhna (1976-1986). O chionn ghoirid, chuir mòran eòlas air mar thoradh air obair còmhla ris an fhìdhlear Shealtainneach Aly Bain. Tha Phil fìor thàlantach mar stiùiriche-ciùil, mar neach a bhios a' toirt thugainn phrògraman agus mar riochdaire. Rinn e dà shreath de phìosan-ciùil airson làn-orcastra agus ionnstramaidean Ceilteach. Anns an earrainn chlaistinnich seo, a chaidh a chlàradh o thùs airson 'Moray Firth People' tràth anns na 1990an, tha Phil a' bruidhinn ri Robina Goodfellow mu na tha e cur roimhe na dhreuchd.

Interviewer: In five years' time when I come up to your studios near Beauly, where will you be or what will you be doing?

I hope I'll be sitting at the fire with my feet up and there'll be a whole squad of people working in here, sending me money across by the barrel load. I hope to develop the studio into a bigger thing. I want to create a complete post-production facility for music to picture, and developing the whole film writing side of my career. I want that to be, the kind of, the mainstay of it. I'm working on a huge project just now which has been on the go for about four years; a big orchestral suite called 'The Highlands and Islands Suite' which is doing a thirty-piece fiddle orchestra, plus a full classical orchestra, forty-piece Gaelic choir, and soloists: Karen Matheson from Capercaillie and the three MacDonald brothers from Glenuig - the pipers; a drum corps of six; Aly Bain on fiddle; Duncan Chisholm leading the Highland fiddlers; myself on keyboards, kind of like a Jean Michelle Jarres or kind of Rick Wakeman vibe, running about pretending to play things that are already pre-sequenced, so that I can have big sleeves. And I'm working on that at the moment, I'm still writing it, and I'm hoping that that's going to be performed early '95, or by summer of '95 at the latest, so that's the thing that's going to be at the front of my mind, trying to get that finished. It's a, it's a big undertaking. It's about 128 musicians all told.

There's also a thing called 'The Big Picnic', which is a follow up to 'The Ship', by the same company that made 'The Ship', which is a play about World War I . I've been asked to do the music for that. And that's going to be held in the old Harland and Wolfe engine yard in Govan, where 'The Ship' was held. And basically, the audience will come into an area which will be designed to look like Glasgow Cross, or Partick Cross, and they're having this kind of little ceilidh at the cross, and a letter arrives back from France where somebody is over at this so-called war at the time. And they say, 'You should come over because it's, you know, there's no war at all; it's just a big picnic.' At which point all the guys sign up. And then, these soldiers appear and march you through into the rest of the engine yard and it's done out like the trenches. And the audience walk around inside the trenches, with the actors, and the band are on a crane up above the, up above the, the theatre, and we get moved up and down on this crane to follow the action. And the audience, some of the audience will be on hover seating. So it'll be like 250 people on a big hovercraft on one side of the stage, and 250 on the other side, and soldiers'll push them up and down to follow the action as well. It's a massive project
