The Sacred Steel Summit is the premier gathering of tradition bearers of the
Sacred Steel gospel tradition. Featuring lap steel guitarists, pedal steel guitarists and other members of the tradition, the Sacred Steel Summit brings together all the styles of this unique musical genre that has been shared around the world. Serving as a key focus of the Florida Folklife Festival, the nation’s oldest state-sponsored folklife festival, the Sacred Steel Summit features educational presentations, technical workshops and one-of-a-kind concert presentations with legendary innovators and emerging talent.
The Sacred Steel Summit depends on sponsorships to ensure that we can bring the best and
brightest culture bearers to the event.
