  • "A small piece of history has been reclaimed with the finding of this violin. However, as noted in this article, let's not forget that there were 7 other members of Hartley's band that gave their lives by playing music to keep Titanic passengers calm while the ship was sinking. I highly recommend a recent book about their lives: The Band that Played On: http://dld.bz/SM8u"

Titanic violin discovered

The missing violin played by the Titanic’s band leader as the ship slowly sank may have been found 99 years on.

Wallace Hartley and his seven band members became part of the Titanic’s history when they continued to play while going down with the ship on April 14, 1912.

But now the violin has been found and is undergoing tests at a specialist auction house to test its authenticity.

Experts are so sure the violin is the real deal they are planning to take it on a world tour to mark the 100th anniversary of the liner’s sinking.
