Longtime fiddler, dance caller David Kaynor connects community through music

While alternate contra dance couples move up and down the set at Greenfield’s Guiding Star Grange on weekends, David Kaynor acts as caller, plays fiddle or simply inspires other musicians.

But he’s also present as a guiding spirit.

Kaynor, at 70, has been a staple of the nationally known Greenfield dances for nearly 40 years, as well as a central figure in building community around traditional music, dance and ritual. He’s also credited with keeping the grange halls in Greenfield and Montague alive and swinging.
