CABRI WALTZ. AKA - "Capri Waltz." Canadian, American; Waltz. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Matthiesen): AA'BB' (Brody). The tune is sourced to North Dakota fiddler Joe Pancerzewski (1905-1991), who said he heard it when he was eight years old (c. 1913). It was named after a small town in Saskatchewan, and was brought to Pancerzewski's region from Canada by Bill Smith. The waltz was popular at New England and Northern contra dances for many years, popularized by the Albany, N.Y., based band Fennig's All Stars.
