The Sandy Denny discography chronicles the output of British folk rock singer Sandy Denny. Her brief career, spanning 1967 to 1978, saw the release of 4 solo albums and 4 singles on several record labels.

Denny was the lead singer of the group Fairport Convention, and fronted the band through several of their most highly regarded albums: What We Did on Our Holidays, Unhalfbricking, and Liege & Lief were all released by the band during 1969, and are today considered touchstones in the progression of British folk rock. Fairport guitarist and songwriter Richard Thompson would prove to be an important collaborator in Denny's life, and he would go on to perform guitar duties on each of her solo albums.

In addition to her work with Fairport Convention, Denny was also a member of The Strawbs, Fotheringay and The Bunch. Other notable recordings include her duet with Robert Plant on Led Zeppelin's "The Battle of Evermore", as well as a brief appearance on a live version of The Who's Tommy. She has received a number of awards and accolades from different organizations.
