Why would someone name their family-friendly act "Strange Fruit"? It's the title of a decades old poem/song about a lynching! Made famous by Billie Holiday:

Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

You'd think the MUSIKfest people would have heard of this song...
