    Arlo Guthrie, Keith Lockhart, and Dr. Mae Jemison caught up backstage at the Boston Pops on Wednesday night. Lockhart, the Pops’ conductor, and Guthrie were there for the “Summer of ’69” event, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the Beatles’ “Abbey Road,” the Who’s “Tommy!,” and the moon landing. Engineer and scientist Jemison, who was the first black woman to travel in space, helped narrate the celebration.
