Herring Road Celebration

Herring Road Celebration

A one day gathering on Dunbar Harbour to send off the artists and walkers of the ancient Herring Road, journeying in the footsteps of the Fisher Lassies.

Salt and Soil A collaborative poetry exchange replicted the traditional inland exchange of of herring for grain- salt for soil; visitors were also invited to offer their thoughts of sea and hill, in exchange for one of the eight poets postcards. Celebrations in fishy workshops, May Pole dancing and music rhyme and song on the quayside enjoyed by all generations; seemlesly weaving across traditional and contemporary culture.
