O Ivor Cutler Assembly Rooms, George Street. 5.45pm. £4.50 (£4). What on earth is an ancient poet who plays the harmonium doing in the rock listings? I don’t know either, but extensive Peel exposure and some of the quirkiest lyrics ever to cross these ears might have something to do with it. You might even find out what a ‘grut’ is. Ivor Cutler is appearing as part of the
