Bluegrass maestro Alvin Breeden, an internationally-known banjo player and accomplished musician on multiple instruments, was known to friends as a kind, humorous, laid-back man who would help anyone in need.

Mr. Breeden, of Earlysville, died Tuesday of complications related to lung cancer. He was 70. He was a well-known performer in bluegrass music circles for more than 50 years before retiring in 2010.
