A rare treat, echoing campfire days of old. Sitting among good friends, sharing soul-stirring stories of our lives, wrapped in poetry and set to heart-warming music. Precious moments no concert hall or club could ever replicate. For acoustic music lovers, this is as good as it gets.

Ed Tree

ED TREE is one of the most beloved members of LA's singer-songwriter community. His touring days with the Spencer Davis Group led to gigs playing lead guitar for Rita Coolidge, Juice Newton, Al Stewart, Dusty Springfield, Booker T. Jones and The Bum Steers, as well as sharing the stage with Jimmy Buffett, Aaron Neville and Bonnie Bramlett. Over the past 35 years, Ed has become renowned as a producer and engineer, with over 120 CDs to his credit, not to mention the admiration and gratitude of all those whose albums he's blessed with his talent.

June 6th: Our new series, "Thursday Night at the A-Frame" debuts

Nick Kirgo
Billy Joseph
Barrett Tagliarino
Tom Kolb

NICK KIRGO, BILLY JOSEPH, BARRETT TAGLIARINO and TOM KOLB kick off a brand new and different kind of concert series at the A-Frame on Thursday, June 6th. Inspired and co-hosted by ED TREE, our new Thursday Night concerts will spotlight guitarists - with occasional detours into other instruments, poetry and spoken word. Our debut show will devote the entire evening to the art and craft of instrumental guitar music, performed by four LA guitar masters. The artists will pair off for two 30 minute sets, then all four will return to the stage to take audience requests for particular styles, artists or songs. We're excited to offer something new and different on the acoustic music scene, and we hope you'll be equally enthusiastic about our new Thursday Night shows. Please come join us! - Coddy Nuckols & Ed Tree

June 22nd: Susan Marie Reeves & Kristina Olsen

Susan Marie Reeves
Kristina Olsen

SUSAN MARIE REEVES is a talented, multi-instrumental, award- winning singer/songwriter. She took up piano at 7, began writing music at 11, and guitar in her teens. Having toured for 6 years with her bluegrass band, Wild Sage, she is currently touring solo, as well with the highly acclaimed bluegrass band, Honeysuckle Possums. Susan has just completed her 2nd solo CD, “Young Heart”. Her voice is lilting, pure, and earthy, and her music is picturesque and melodic, flowing across genres. She calls her original music “Gypsy Newgrass” - a combination of bluegrass, mountain, folk, Irish, & alternative pop/rock. She is a Nashville songwriter, recording and performing there often. Susan Marie calls California home, touring the nation throughout the year.

KRISTINA OLSEN is known for her sometimes humorous, often heartfelt and occasionally ribald songs. Raised in Haight-Ashbury during the '60s, Kristina's approach to music and life was formed by that environment of vital cultural expression, social activism and diverse musical influences. Kristina won the Kerrville New Folk contest in 1985 with her song for battered women, 'I'm Keeping This Life of Mine'. Her songs have been covered by artists such as Eric Bibb, Fairport Convention, Maddy Prior, Mary Coughlan and Mollie O'Brien.

Coddy Nuckols' wonderful new album, "Just Through These Trees"

ABOUT YOUR HOST: Coddy Nuckols is a keen observer of the human heart, as gifted at turning stories & melodies into unforgettable songs, as he is skilled at turning common brick & stone into unexpected works of beauty.

Coddy and his wife Mary moved to Kagel Canyon in 1985 with dreams of building a house of their own. Their two boys were born and grew up here, and the A-Frame was completed in 1990. They moved in by walking up the hill from their 8’ x 40’ baby blue 1955 Flamingo mobile home.

Music has always been a significant part of Coddy’s life since the folk days of the 1960s singing with his brother and sister, and has found its way into the stone and wood of the A-Frame.
