Jimmy Joins Willie Nelson in Montauk

Jimmy Buffett joined Willie Nelson at his show on Montauk this weekend:

Legendary country singer Willie Nelson drew an appreciative crowd by land and sea—well, pond—to the Surf Lodge in Montauk Sunday evening for a concert in which Jimmy Buffett joined him for a couple of songs.

Mr. Nelson, who recently celebrated a birthday, played straight through, noting at one point that he was “studying being 80” and that it was looking pretty great.

The concert was free, with 100 reserved admission tickets going for $100 and raising money for the Montauk Playhouse Foundation, whose community center, a work in progress as well as already in use, is right down the road. Those who hadn’t snagged a guaranteed spot at the Surf Lodge used their own ingenuity, plying Fort Pond on paddleboards and in kayaks and sailboats and forming a flotilla right next to the restaurant. Mr. Nelson turned and acknowledged them at least once, inspiring toots and the raising of paddles in salute from the pond.
