Different musicians have different instruments, with which they play different music. Those who play the lute play a rendition of Harmony. Violinists play a rendition of Spirit. The lyre players in the Fremennik Province play a rendition of Rellekka. Flute players in the Desert play a rendition of Arabian. The Elf Musician plays a rendition of Forest. Thump-thump plays a rendition of The Lost Tribe. The accordion players play a remix of Norse Code. The Drunken musician plays a bad version of Harmony and the Ghostly piper plays a piece of his own, similar to the Karamjan drummers.
Since 7 November 2011 there are two new musicians at Abbey of St. Elspeth Citharede, which cannot be talked to along with Valerio, who is on the other hand the first musician with fully-voice acted dialogues.
- The musicians say they were told of the medicinal qualities of music by a "traveling medical practitioner, selling oil extracted from snakes". This is a reference to a snake oil salesman, a medical con-man.
- The Isafdarian Musician could possibly be a reference to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, as she resembles Saria and is playing an ocarina. She is also sitting on a tree stump, just like the aforementioned character.
- The Isafdarian musician's ocarina appears to be made of crystal.
- Valerio is the only Musician who does not mention the effects of resting near a musician.
- The examine text for the musicians in Karamja (one near the Tai Bwo Wannai general store, and another next to Shilo Village) may be an allusion to the Stone Roses song, called She Bangs The Drums.
- The Drunken musician near the Forgotten Cemetery in the Wilderness plays an adaption of Harmony like other lute players, however if you listen carefully, he plays a few wrong chords, and, near the end of the song, speeds up the tempo erratically.
- If you listen to the musician near Canifis straight behind him, it looks like you're hovering above the ground.
- The musician south of the Asgarnia Monastery appears to be wearing a similar costume to the lead minstrel in the film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
- If you are wielding a 2h sword and click 'listen to musician', your player will wield the 2h like a sword as they walk towards the musician.
- If talking to a musician, they will say that their music cannot cure "a lack of faith" (prayer points depleted), among other things, but with the release of the One Piercing Note quest, it is possible to restore prayer while listening to one.
- There is currently a glitch that if you have any songs in your music playlist, you will not hear their music. This has not been fixed yet.
