Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album
Awarded for quality traditional blues albums
Country United States
Presented by National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences
First awarded 1983
Last awarded 2017

The Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album was awarded from 1983 to 2011 and from 2017 onwards. Until 1992 the award was known as Best Traditional Blues Performance and was twice awarded to individual tracks rather than albums.

The award was discontinued after the 2011 Grammy season in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012 onwards, the category was merged with the Best Contemporary Blues Album category to form the new Best Blues Album category. However, in 2016 the Grammy organisation decided to revert the situation back to the pre-2012 era, with two separate categories for traditional and contemporary blues recordings respectively.[1]

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were handed out, for music released in the previous year.
