Captain Thunderbolt’s Recital

Jane Jolly, Liz Duthie

Ernst fumbled with his bassoon.
Johannes nervously held his tuba to his mouth.
Peter’s moustache quivered as he raised his trombone.
Jacob picked up his flugelhorn with trembling hands.

A bushranger ambushes a travelling German band, taking their hard-earned money and demanding a concert! He plays his whistle and dances a jig as the men brrroo and oom pah pah on their instruments in fear. But this is the famed ‘gentleman bushranger’ Captain Thunderbolt, and this true story has a surprising ending!

Captain Thunderbolt’s Recital is a fun and whimsical introduction to a captivating side of Australian history.
