The duo is dedicated to writing, recording and performing across the US. They teach songwriting workshops, do artists-in-the-school residencies, promote Folk and songwriting events, and produce and play on CDs by other artists. Wishing Chair takes it's cultural work and political responsibilities seriously. Kiya and Miriam spend many weeks a year helping to organize, publicize and energize organizations focused on Social Justice, Environmental, Animal, Native, Women's and Gay Rights causes.
