Revolutionary Love: A Concert to Benefit Thistle Farms A night of song, stories at the Ryman featuring the Fisk Jubilee Singers


NASHVILLE, TN – Thistle Farms, an international nonprofit justice enterprise serving women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction, announces Revolutionary Love, a benefit concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, March 19, 2024 in honor of International Women’s Day.

“Our story of revolutionary love began almost 30 years ago with a single house to provide sanctuary and safety for women survivors – and challenged ourselves to do it lavishly,” said Becca Stevens, Founder and President of Thistle Farms. “Today, we are an international movement for women’s freedom rooted in the belief that love is the most powerful force for change in the world. That is what revolutionary love is all about, and this gathering will be a celebration of that idea.”

The Fisk Jubilee Singers will be joined on stage for special performances by Ruby Amanfu, Mary Gauthier, Marcus Hummon and Levi Hummon, and performing as a trio for this special event will be Bronwyn Keith-Hynes, Brenna Macmillan, and Cristina Vane.

“We invite the community to join us on March 19 at the Ryman Auditorium and share in song and story,” said Tasha Kennard, CEO of Thistle Farms. “Guests will experience uplifting performances by the Fisk Jubilee Singers and special guests, hear stories from graduates of Thistle Farms’ residential program, and explore what it means to practice revolutionary love in support of survivors of trafficking and exploitation.”

Tickets will go on sale February 2, with VIP presale opening on January 31 and can be purchased through the Ryman Auditorium’s website at or by visiting Seats available starting at $40 with all proceeds to benefit Thistle Farms.
