Dick Gaughan boycotts BBC over referendum bias

Folk star boycotts festival opening night concert over BBC’s indie ref “bias”

ONE of Scotland’s top folk musicians is boycotting a major music festival’s opening night concert in protest at BBC coverage of the independence referendum. 

Dick Gaughan was invited to play at the opening night of Celtic Connections at the Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow on 15th January. He now says he will not take part because he found BBC Scotland’s news coverage of the independence referendum “intolerable.”
