Article: Jamie discusses the importance of music onboard the Titanic

Earlier this week JCF brought you the news that Jamie will be taking part in the Titanic music and film commemoration in Belfast on 17th April.

And now JCF can bring you a little more details on this.

A Commemoration in Music and Film is going to be broadcast live on BBC Two from the city’s Waterfront Hall on the centenary of the sinking of the famous liner.

Jamie talks about the importance of music onboard the Titanic in the programme, said the vessel reflected the social history of the time, with separated classes for passengers, and music gave an insight into that era.

“The musicians in particular still touch people today because they were normal people who acted in an extraordinary way when they played the instruments they loved, to calm the passengers and no doubt themselves,” he said.

The night will also include performances from Katie Melua, Lisa Hannigan, Mica Paris, Maverick Sabre, Bryan Ferry and Joss Stone.
