Yes, 2 row accordions worthwhile including in the mix.

It is worthwhile including 2 row accordions in the mix.

Most of the time, there is very little that is different in the playing style between a two row and a three row. Most zydeco songs played on a triple row only involve the use of two rows, which means there are no changes in playing style required to play on a two row. Other songs, might use all three rows, but could easily adapted to two rows without losing too much in the process. I sometimes use a third row in order to get a fuller chord here or there, or because of some minor advantage in fingering.
