UK  country, Americana and roots music and culture festival, The Long Road, has announced its second wave of line-up additions for the festival which takes place at Stanford Hall, Leicestershire in the heart of the English countryside this year from 23rd to 25th August. Amongst a strong list of americana and roots acts are Katie Pruitt, whose latest album ‘Mantras’ emerged this month.  Pruitt is representing queer country at TLR along with Brooke Eden, a rising country pop artist from Florida.  Pruitt will be playing on two of the festival’s five stages. Brooklyn’s Gangstagrass, who have been successfully crowdfunding their next album, return to the UK with their unique and addictive blend of hip hop and bluegrass.
