Bristol March

Bristol March

by Oliver Shaw

A march "composed and arranged for the piano forte with an accompaniment for the flute or violin," published by Shaw in 1837. In his youth he studied music at Newport, and from 1807 until his death in 1848 he made his home in Providence, so he would have been familiar with the Town of Bristol, after which he named this composition.
