Paintings by a Congenitally Blind Man

Esref Armagan was born blind to an impoverished Turkish family.
First, using a Braille stylus, he etches an outline of his drawing... When he is satisfied with his drawing, he starts to apply the oils with his fingers. Because he applies only one color at a time (the colors would smear otherwise), he must wait two or three days for the color to dry before applying the next color

His work has been displayed at dozens of exhibitions in Turkey and in Europe.  A gallery of his work (non-flash version).

Previously on Neatorama:  The Blind Painter (a different one).

Carson McCullers' book The Heart is a Lonely Hunter has a mute Singer as the protagonist.

And if "instrumentalist" includes composers, we could probably do Beethoven or Smetana...
