QUEEN OF THE MAY [3]. English, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Queen of the May [3]" is contained in the 1823 music manuscript collection (No. 91) of musicianH.S.J. Jackson of Wyresdale, Lancashire." The tune is similar to William Winter's mid-19th century "Trip to the Woodlands" with points of correspondence, although perhaps not cognate.
