Speaking only from Artemisian/Atenveldt experience-
I haven't really seen that many bardics myself, but those that do occur
seem to be very "important" - large attendance, competitive nature, etc.

usually only an occassional "special request" during a court, and often
during/after feast - never heard one with any relation to a tourney

> Who do you hear preform bardic (only the super bards, or everyone?)  

pretty much anyone is welcome/encouraged/mercilessly shoved forward (the
last being my personal experience at my first bardic), but there are a
few "super-bards" who can be counted on at any gathering (a piper, a
storyteller, several middle-eastern dancers, and an incredible alto)
