The Plaque

Joseph Antonio Emidy Plaque

The Emidy Memorial Plaque was hand-carved by Jacky Allan, commissioned by Diabate Arts and donated to Falmouth Parish Church by Marjorie Emidy, Clarence Corbishley and Galina Chester. The Plaque was unveiled by the Right Hon. Paul Boateng MP, in the presence of Revd. Stephen Tudgey and two Joseph Emidy descendants, Clarence Corbishley and Peter Rozie. This was followed by a concert of African Classical Music by the ACM Ensemble featuring Flute, Kora (West African Harp-Lute) and Acoustic Guitar.
