Minstrels and musicians are common enough in Thule’s cities, but the heroic bard is not normally found in this setting because arcane magic is so rare. Very few Thuleans dabble in arcane studies—if a character makes any study of magic at all, she’s much more likely to be a true arcane caster (for example, a sorcerer or wizard) instead of a dilettante. Elves and half-elves are primary exception to this rule; arcane traditions are noticeably more prevalent in elven culture, so an elf bard would not necessarily be out of place in Thule. Some Atlantean nobles might also have a range of skills, talents, and magical ability best described by the bard class.
