About the Artist

Crabmeat Thompson

Known as “a local legend,” Crab has actually performed his funky blend of folk, country, blues in comedy clubs, schools, and bars, on TV and radio, in two dozen states as well as Canada, Mexico, Spain, Ireland, and Costa Rica. Twice awarded Artist Fellowships in Delaware, the Meat has also received two awards from the Delaware Press Association for his writing, and he represented the state at the Knoxville World’s Fair.  This experience led to his recording “Small Wonder” about Delaware, which has been published in a Mel Bay book, Songs of the American People.

An experienced Teaching Artist and Lecturer, Professor Thompson has taught Literature and writing at Oregon State and Rowan Universities and at Polk County College in Florida. Currently he tutors ESL at University of Delaware, where he is pursuing a degree—in Spanish this time. He and his wife, Janice, travel once a year to teach English at Vaughantown, Valdelavilla, in the mountains of northern Spain next to France and the basquephone Kingdom of Navarre.

Thompson’s eight albums of original music are available at gigs or from Amazon, with downloads at iTunes, and he is available to perform both solo, duo, or with his band.
