The country trio fro Atwood, Ill., will wrap up the “Weekends in the Park” concert series at Davis Park, 318 S. Wyman St., Rockford.

The Henningsens is led by family patriarch and father of 10, Brian Henningsen (bass, guitar, vocals) and includes eldest son Aaron (guitar, vocals) and daughter Clara (lead vocals, guitar). The heartland theme that runs throughout the music of The Henningsens seems only natural for a family from rural Atwood, Ill., where their 1,700-acre farm has offered home and livelihood. Their first single and album title track is called “American Beautiful,” and showcases a sound that is fresh, vibrant and uniquely their own, offering lyrics that paint sometimes traditional themes in non-traditional ways.
