IRISH-AMERICAN MUSICAL HERITAGE: Another place to honor Irish culture this Sunday is at the Needham Historical Society, where the group Ask Your Father presents “Creating a National Identity: Songs of the Irish Americans,” a lecture and musical presentation exploring songs that reflect images of Ireland but were written by Americans. The program traces popular songs from the 1840s through the early 2oth century that tell stories of labor, emigration, homesickness, and struggle as a key to the cultural identity of Irish-Americans. The program begins at 2 p.m. at the Needham Historical Society, 1147 Central Ave., Needham. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served. For more information, call 781-455-8860 or go to www.needhamhistory.org.
