ACL 2011: Music Festivals For The Deaf And Hard Of Hearing

An interesting highlight I finally got to experience at Austin City Limits this year was sign language interpreters working at many of the major acts. I first read about them here, but never actually saw an interpreter at work at a festival. The interpreters are a dandy performance to watch. Communicating the emotion and feeling of music through a combination of sign language, body movements and beat emulation is a monumental task. Good on them.
