“Crabmeat has a wide repertoire of songs, ranging from comments on the environment to political topics to material based on his travels or his career as a college teacher, all done with his trademark sense of humor.  In addition, his musicianship on guitar, voice, and other instruments is superb and he always develops a rapport with any audience.  Crabmeat Thompson is an excellent performer!”
