It’s fair to say that we at Team FFS bend to no-one in our love of Anais Mitchell’s Hadestown. So while some some might be put off by an EP with the title Alexander the Great: a Folk Operetta ? Act 1, we say bring it on. Huck & The Xander band is a project led by Oxford’s Humphrey ‘Huck’ Astley and which is due to culminate in a performance of the full operetta in partnership with the Cambridge Junction theatre next year. ‘Alex’ is the opening track.
