Marimac Recordings was founded by Larry MacBride in 1984 and continued with releases of American old time, Blues and Cajun music until his death from abdominal cancer on August 24, 1993.[1]

The releases covered old master fiddlers, young string bands, and under-represented Cajun and blues musicians. The label released some 100 recordings before Larry MacBride's death. In 1996, Rounder issued a sampler CD of recordings from the label.
