“He’s a F*cking great songwriter” – Sam Fender

"From first hearing, it has been clear to me that Hector Gannet are a band of exceptional talent." Tom Robinson BBC 6music

“Top 25 bands that might change your life…” - Louder Than War
 

 

Hector Gannet, from North Shields on Tyneside, are masters of a kind of new, modernist folk music, taking their name from an ill-fated trawler which sank in the North Sea under heroic circumstances in 1967. Hector Gannet’s musical incarnation began to draw attention when they wrote and performed music to accompany vintage footage of the North East heritage of shipbuilding and fishing as part of a project for the BFI, and a tour supporting Sam Fender soon followed.  Hector Gannet has toured widely since, including support slots with Sea Power, Lanterns on The Lake, Peter Doherty and Kathryn Williams, plus two North American adventures and, more recently selling out Sage Hall Two in Gateshead. Hector Gannet’s second album, The Land Belongs To Us, was released to acclaim in 2023. MOJO awarded four stars: “Pointedly political, natural-world-advocating folk rock.” Uncut proclaimed “North Shields’ answer to Crazy Horse.”

 

Hector Gannet are now back in the studio preparing a forthcoming release for November, after a busy summer which seen the band playing a stadium gig with Sam Fender at St James Park Newcastle, a gig in a brewery with folk legends Lindisfarne, and also playing at Muncaster Castle as part of the superb boutique Krankenhaus festival curated by Sea Power in the Lake District.
