Bob Hallett is a founding member of Canadianmarker folk-rock band Great Big Sea and continues to play with them today.

Hallett was born in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labradormarker on May 23, 1968, making him the only native St. Johnsman in Great Big Sea. Born to a musical family, Hallett learned to play the saxophone while in school, and taught himself guitar and tin whistle while a teenager. He would later learn to play both the accordion and the fiddle.

Hallett attended Memorial Universitymarker, where he met Séan McCann, with whom he founded the Newfoundland Republican Army, an 8-man musical group. After this group collapsed, he and McCann founded a pub act called Rankin Street. After the band's split-up in 1993, it evolved into Great Big Sea, in an attempt to bring more of a Newfoundland sound to their music.

Hallett has also produced a handful of recordings by other musicians, including Vince Collins's "Lifting Out the Stove," and Shanneyganock's "Fling out the Flag". He has also produced an album for the Moncton-based band, Banshee, and Janelle Dupuis, another Moncton based artist.
