A Clash of Kings
In order to plant the notion of Ser Loras Tyrell taking the white Littlefinger slips a few silvers to Lord Tyrell's army of singers to sing of Ryam Redwyne, Serwyn of the Mirror Shield, and Prince Aemon the Dragonknight. He tells Sansa Stark that a harp can be as dangerous as a sword in the right hands.
Prince Rhaegar Targaryen appears in one of Daenerys Targaryen's visions in the House of the Undying. At the end of the vision he goes to the window seat, picks up a harp, and runs his fingers lightly over its silver strings. Sweet sadness fills the room as the vision fades, and only the music lingers behind.
A Storm of Swords
Tom of Sevenstreams tells his companions that Lady Lysa Arryn once sent him up the high road, where the Moon Brothers took his gold, horse, and clothes. He walked up to the Gates of the Moon with nothing but his harp. There the guards made him sing two songs before letting him pass.
