That's exactly what I look for in a "True" bard. 
Many, many, many years ago when I was knighted at the last
Steppes Warlord to be held at Camp Burnett of the fond memory,
I issued a bardic challenge. The challenge was for a bard to
be able to enter the main party place and do a piece so well
that the rowdy drunks shut up and listened. The prize was
a coin dating to the Second Crusade that was found in a 
section of excavated wall in Jerusalem. 
A bard walked away with the coin as well.

Sounds like fun. I'll have to pencil it onto my calendar.
