That minstrel was not an Issola. (Perhaps you are thinking of Sara, the 
minstrel from /Athyra/?)

In response to the initial querry, the only appearances of male Issola 
that I recall is the Issola who became Lord Brudik for Zerika IV during 
the events of Sethra Lavode.

Allistar is *dressed* as an Issola (in disguise) at the beginning of The 
Phoenix Guard.
(This can be found on page 18 of the paperback edition). Unfortunately, 
the description given of his attire is rather sparse on detail, other 
than the mention of an issola-shaped ring, and the fact that the 
garments were, of course, green and white.
