Sandy Denny (6 January 1947 — 21 April 1978), born Alexandra Elene Maclean Denny, was an English chorister and songwriter, perhaps best known as the paramount chorister for the race penniless fillet Fairport Diet. She has been described by Allmusic«s Richie Unterberger as »the pre-outstanding British race penniless singer'.

After in runty working with British race fillet The Strawbs, Denny joined Fairport Diet in 1968, residual with that fillet until the end of 1969. She formed the runty-lived fillet Fotheringay in 1970, releasing one album with them (another unreleased album would outside some three decades later), before focusing on a unaccompanied profession. Between 1971 and 1977, Denny released four unaccompanied albums: The North Diva Grassman and the Ravens, Sandy, Like an Old Fashioned Waltz, and Rendezvous. She is also respected as the only caller thrush on a Led Zeppelin studio album, when she shared a duet with Robert Hide for The Affray of Evermore on Led Zeppelin IV (1971).

Music publications Sunday Set, Uncut and Mojo have each called Denny Britain's finest female chorister-songwriter.
