The band that went down with the Titanic
Who were those eight musicians who kept things calm, but lost their seats on the lifeboats?
By Rob Kerby
The eight members of the Titanic’s band weren’t even crew members – instead they had been booked for the cruise through a Liverpool talent agency. All eight, bandmaster Wallace Hartley, Roger Bricoux, John Frederick Preston Clarke, Percy Cornelius Taylor, Georges Alexandre Krins, William Theodore Brailey, John Law Hume and John Wesley Woodward, perished. But they will be forever remembered by their acts of courage that fateful night.
