Accordion Étouffée: The Kraig Greff Story
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 14, 2022
BALTIMORE, MD - This month Tonal Vision owner Jacquie Greff announced the start of production of a new documentary entitled “Accordion Étouffée: The Kraig Greff Story." The documentary will chronicle the life and career of her late husband, business partner and master musician, Kraig Greff.
Co-founder of the nationally-renowned zydeco/roots rock/funk group The Crawdaddies, Kraig was an accomplished composer, producer, and performer on accordion, piano and Hammond B-3 organ in numerous genres. His career included several guest accordionist appearances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, touring with Barry White and Diana Ross, and an album with world-renowned percussionist Ron Powell.
A fiercely loyal and generous friend with a singular wit, Kraig enjoyed mentoring up-and-coming performing artists and producers. One example was Greff’s streaming series, “Mice in the Attic,” which gave a number of Baltimore musicians their first broad area exposure. During a recent on camera interview, best selling author Mat Edelson fondly remembers Kraig’s passion for his craft, “He set a very high bar for musicianship.”
“Accordion Étouffée: The Kraig Greff Story” is expected to be ready for release in 2024. You can follow production updates on the Facebook page "Accordion Étouffée: The Kraig Greff Story".
