Rob Kennedy

Rob has been an elementary teacher since 1991 in the Waterloo area, where he originally moved to in 1974. After receiving a Masters of Social Work in 1976, he worked with adolescents at a treatment center called Lutherwood. In the 90's after going to teacher's college, Rob began a new career teaching children in the elementary system which he continued to June 2013 when he retired. Although with no musical credits or awards to his name, Rob quietly pursued his passion behind the scenes with the help of people like Fred Smith, the producer for many of Rob's songs, who greatly assisted in bringing Little Red Poppy to the stage.

Rob would also like to thank two other members of his creative team - Matt Inglot of Tilted Pixel who was so instrumental in making the website easy to navigate and helping with the visual impact of the CD cover and Brigitte von Aderkas whose breathtaking pictures of the poppy were critical to the look we wanted for the CD insert. Lastly, Rob would like to thank his Mom Kathryn for putting up with all of those hours of playing an electric guitar in the back bedroom trying to learn those garage tunes of the sixties.

During the summer of 2015, I had the special opportunity to hook up with a trio of very talented artists living in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. With project manager Francesco Greco on piano and sisters Colette Chiarello and Denise Lacroix doing vocals, they put together and sang a beautiful French rendition of Little Red Poppy. Being a bilingual country, it has long been my desire to have this done. Their voices did not disappoint. Little Red Poppy became "Petit Coquelicot Rouge". For more information on this musical group please call or email Francesco at 705.971.2562 or
