LIVE at the A-FRAME A House concert series Hosted by coddy nuckols

View from the brick armchair, all the way back to LA

Once each month, fans of contemporary folk & acoustic music gather together in the warm embrace of singer-songwriter Coddy Nuckols' beautiful, hand-crafted A-Frame, nestled high in the hills of Kagel Canyon.

Singer-songwriter Michael McNevin

Here, in this cozy and intimate setting, they experience the joy of listening to live music from some of the finest singer-songwriters of our time.

Song circle wraps up another wonderful night of music at the A-Frame

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.

January 25, 2020: The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble

Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble

Live at the A-Frame is thrilled to kick off the New Year with The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble! Award-winning vocalist Susie Glaze, mandolinist Steve Rankin, fiddler Mark Indictor and bassist Fred Sanders are the newest version of LA's acclaimed Americana group, a lush new folk-Americana fusion ensemble, presenting gorgeous eclectic blends of mountain folk and exciting New Grassy and Celtic-inspired originals, all with the remarkable voice of Susie Glaze. The group has been likened to Pentangle and Fairport Convention, blending classic folk music with rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate, all with arrangements sounding like chamber music gone folk! Augmenting their sound is Rankin’s lush, Celtic bouzouki, Susie’s Appalachian dulcimer and traditional autoharp, with Mark Indictor’s virtuoso fiddling and Fred Sanders’ remarkable bass work rounding out the orchestral nature of this amazing quartet. The Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble has appeared at premier West Coast venues and festivals, including Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, McCabe’s Guitar Shop, The Broad Stage, the Hollywood Bowl, Palms Playhouse, Don Quixote’s Music Hall, Kuumbwa Jazz Center and CalTech Folk Music Society, among others. Their 2013 CD “White Swan” was released to critical acclaim and charted in the Top 50 on the Roots Music Report’s Folk Chart. Their 2015 album “Not That Kind of Girl” produced by Herb Pedersen enjoyed critical acclaim and radio airplay around the country. Their latest CD, "Live at McCabe's" will be available for sale at our show. Song samples can be heard at www.susieglaze.com

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.
