This is a series of posts about the #TradSongTues project, run by various people at the University of Sheffield. Every week I've been recording a song for the theme, sharing it and talking about it. Come and play on Twitter!

A hard theme this week, but at no point did anyone say that it had to be a human body! Here's the Herring Song.

This comes from Tyneside, which you can tell because it says "Hinnie1". The idea behind this song is that the herring is a fish that can do literally everything.
