The Interloper's Guide to Vamdrup (Denmark) ep.1

Join Kevin Acott, Harvey Wells and Alban Low on The Interloper's Guide to Vamdrup (Denmark). Every episode the trio travel to a new location around the world in a quest to capture the spirit of the place. It is a search for the sensation of Hiraeth, a homesickness for a place you have yet to visit. Their experiences don't rely on aeroplanes or long distant travel but a mixture of music and words on this 20 minute programme. In Episode 1 they visit the former border town of Vamdrup in Denmark (population 5,000).
