Gordy Euler


Gordy Euler was introduced to contradance music in the 1980s while living in Anchorage, Alaska. Since returning to Portland in 1989, he has become involved with both the Portland Folk Music Society and the Portland Country Dance Community. Gordy attended his first calling workshop at the Festival of American Fiddletunes in 1994, and became a regular contradance caller in 2000. Dance programs that are fun with lots of variety while providing some challenges is what he presents in an evening. He has written a number of dances as well.  Gordy plays fiddle, piano, and whistle in two contradance bands, Bandwidth and Blue Star.
