I really don’t know
My parents took me in the stroller to shows at The Bitter End and the Gaslight in Greenwich Village (so maybe Baez or Odetta or Tom Paxton etc)
My first memories of shows revolve around Philadelphia Folk Festival 1967… so whoever played that year I saw…

The first rock concert I went to without my parents was YES 1978 MSG in the round - I smoked like two dozen pinner joints that night and was amazed by the blue haze that hung over the room when it was over

The Rolling Stones, Hartford Civic Center November 10, 1981. First $15.00 ticket which was a big deal at the time. Still one of my all time favorite concerts.

Rush Rochester War Memorial on April 4, 1979. Second show was Eric Clapton at the Rochester War Memorial with Muddy Waters opening May 30, 1979. I liked the second show better.

Classical concerts aside, my first was Three Dog Night at Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor in March of 1974. It was fun and cool to be at a concert without parents or a symphony, but I had more fun in '89 when the Dead played there! :D

Funny what’s allowed at the jazz fest vs a rock show. Seen some great line ups a the jazz fest there. So fun
