The Loretta Boles O’Bryant, Sacred Steel Sisterhood Award, is given to recognize the significant contributions that women have played in the history of sacred steel music.
Women are usually the supporting cast, playing secondary instruments such as the bass guitar, rhythm guitar, drums, keyboards, etc. These instruments are just as important and play an essential part in the total chemistry of Sacred Steel music. All female musicians will receive a certificate of award that perform in Toledo, Ohio at the Mecca of Sacred Steel Music & History to honor the memory of our Mother, the late Loretta Boles O'Bryant.
